Not sure how revolutionary the Snipe rope is, Beal did exactly the same thing years ago
0.2mm of thickness change gives how much extra life on a rope? And then when it does get worn, you're going to chop that bit off anyway and you are ack to square one!
Must be a slow year on the gear innovation front....
"It also allows intuitive belaying and abseiling."
Emmm, run that one by me again.
Agreed - they'd be better off retaining the diameter and consequently the abrasion resistance and having a hollow core to reduce the weight. Besides, just how light do you need to go!?

6.9mm ropes...Not sure I would want to try them out despite the low weight!
It is a twin rope though.
