I only used it once for some rappels and ascent with jumars.
I'm disappointed with the rope overall. I know static rope are supposed to be stiff and abrasion resistance but the Petzl Vector is way too stiff. Hopefully it will loosen up with a few more use out of it. It's so stiff it might as well be a cable. Hard to even tie a simple figure 8 knot on it.
Here's what other sites are saying:
If a day in the office means washing skyscraper windows high off the deck or trimming towering trees, a highly durable cord like the Petzl Vector Static Rope is as essential to your job as the air you breath. Petzl's Fusion Process ensures that the Vector will maintain its shape and handling characteristic throughout its life, so you can always be confident that your equipment will function properly and keep you alive.
Petzl Vector ropes have serious responsibility, keeping you safe. Petzl designed the Vector to keep its shape even with extended use. This makes it safer and more consistent with prusiks, ascenders, and rappelling devices
Depend on sturdiness when you get Petzl's burly 1/2-inch Vector Rope. Designed for use by fire crews, this rope uses Fusion Process to maintain its shape and handling.
