Using it for half a year good so far

Using it for about half a year for outside/inside, trad/sport and you can't see any wear, pretty happy and have no problems or it wrinkle, but I always coil it tight

Looks good - good stretch - low resistance to wear

Good stretch & supple. On first use however it sustained sheath damage with fibres being cut. I have never had a rope so easily damaged. The old rope this was replacing is now in better condition :-(

Not a good buy

Purchased as a new rope to replace a wearing old one. It turns out it's not a great rope. Pay the extra and get something else. It twists at every opportunity it has, regardless of how well you coil it or hang it. It wears too quickly, I've only used it for 3 indoor climbs and can already see heavy signs of wear. I would highly recommend that you stay away.

Not up to the job

After only a handful of trips to the cragg (no more than 50routes) and only one proper lead fall this rope is already very tatty on one end. And has spots that can be easily bent into a complete fold.

Good bits : it's cheap, it's quite light
Bad bits: it has terrible longevity/ durability, it twists up really badly.

Final verdict: possibly useful as a "send" rope but mostly a waste of money

Bad durabilty

After just a few carefull uses (no more than 20 routes) and with only one proper lead fall this rope is already wrecked on one end. The outer sheath is frayed and it easily bends to a complete crease ! I will definitely not be buying this rope again.

Good bits: it's quite light, it's cheap

Bad bits: really hard to keep the twists out, really poor durability.
