Price Paid: $180

Within a few months of use the sheath has turned into a fuzzy mess. It picks up dirt like crazy and is hard to feed thru a belay device. I've owned plenty of ropes from different manufactures over the years and this is the quickest I've seen a rope wear out.

My climbing partner has a Petzl rope and the same thing is happening to his, and if you search the internet there are plenty of other people having the same problem.

Save your money and get a rope from a different company.
