Picked this bad boy up on sale and so far I am not disappointed! It seems to be a great all around good quality rope that is hard to beat for the price. I mean yeah maybe a bit stiff and not super high tech but it does the job!
Ok so it's not quite up there with the latest hi tech rope and does need a lot of care when uncoiling for the first time. It's a great work horse though and handles well , it was an unbeatable value for money deal too. A great all round sports rope which is hard to fault for the price. I would recommend it.
the rope is cheap but good. A bit stiff for my taste.
This rope is super easy to handle, which makes it an ideal rope for beginners. As a beginner, I didn’t want to break the bank on prices and thought this might mean that I would ultimately sacrifice a bit of quality . As far as I can tell, this hasn’t been the case, the rope feeds very bell through any belay devices, the diameter is small enough to feed a bight through ring bolts and the rope hasn’t kinked once. Would absolutely recommend for a first rope!
Overall this rope is a class rope. I've only had this rope for 2 months and it's been used only outdoors maybe about 15 times. So far it's been great, nice to clip, handle and belay with. Obviously would be nice to have a dry coating but as long as you're careful with where you dump your rope, it's not a big deal. The small yellow tape on the ends of the ropes do come off but honestly doesnt bother me as I'm pretty sure I can remember the length of my rope. For the price you pay, you really can't say anything bad about this rope. Would highly recommend as a first rope.
