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.

Manufacturer's Description

The Zephyr is Petzl’s toughest all-around rope. The 10.3 mm diameter offers additional friction in belay/rappel devices for more control, and is extra durable. Its low static elongation also makes it ideal for jugging fixed lines and top roping.

All Petzl rope sheaths make up at least 33% of the total weight of the rope, translating into superior core protection. Combined with a DuraTec dry treatment, Petzl ropes can withstand the abuse of rough granite and abrasive sandstone for countless pitches. All Petzl ropes are ready to use straight out of the package thanks to the special factory butterfly coil. To help prevent lowering and rappelling accidents, Petzl ropes are marked 6 meters from each end to alert climbers that the rope end is approaching. In addition, the middle of each cord is marked to facilitate safer descents.
