/ Zero G ropes
I am looking at getting a 50m half rope and the Zero G ropes seem to be a fairly good price. Has anyone used them and what do they think of it? How does it compare to more expensive ropes like Beal and Mammut?
I have used them extensively and I like them. They handle well. Personally, I would happily buy a pair if I was on the look out for new ropes.
I don't suppose they are the best out there, but for what I wanted (pretty similar in grade and amount to you judging by your profile) they are fine.
One of the reasons I went for them is they seem to have a pretty low impact force which for someone as 'well built' as me is a bonus (as I understand it). The down side is that they are rated for less falls than many of the top brands, but then I haven't had a lead fall yet and don't intend to be on a regular basis anyway!
