/ Zero G ropes
Just wonder how they compare to BEAL and MAMMUT.
I haven't used the half ropes but I use the single ropes for all my group work and they seem to be hard wearing and do the job nicely. I see no reason why the halfs won't be as good.
I've used my mates pair quite a lot. They do the job, but they arn't a patch on the Mammut, Beal, Edrilid ropes I've used.
I wouldn't consider them for winter climbing, but they're fine for trad.
I've used Beal, Mammut, Roca and currently using Zero G half Ropes - they are fine, handle well and dont kink. Dry treatment is ok for most situations. I've also used Zero G single ropes (mostly indoors) for ages.
Put simply they do the job!
I've used them a fair bit. They are pretty decent ropes but feel a bit stiffer than more expensive ropes. Not sure what you can say about them really, I've climbed for years on a wide variety of ropes and am still of the opinion that a rope is pretty much a rope, whoever made it.
as far as quality goes they are as good as any others, the handle ok, possibly a touch soft, and they are a bit stretchier than others i've used.
