Hi,

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?

Cheers
Dom

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 have had mixed experiences with them. They handle well but the single ropes I have come across dont seem to last very long compared with other brands

In reply to Dopey_172: Thanks for the replies, I am really just looking at the half ropes and I dont get out as much as I would like so trying to keep costs down.

In reply to Dopey_172: I recently bought a pair of the dry treated 50s. Cracking value.
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!

In reply to Porridge the climber: Thanks for that, they sound like they will do the job and a pair is probably the way to go as they are excellent value as you say. Thanks very much again for the help everyone.
