"Using the new progressive method called Nanotechnology"
Ahem, that's like saying "Using the new progressive method called Technology" or "Using the new progressive method called Science" or "Using the new progressive method called Engineering". It basically doesn't mean anything.
I call marketing bullshit bingo on this one. I'm sure that what they mean is that they impregnated the rope with small particles of Teflon, but I'm also willing to bet that the process is a more generic materials and less "nano" oriented than implied.
Well, mine has stood up to 2 weeks in Lofoten + some more granite in Fin + 2 weeks of Costa Blanca limestone. True, it's a tad bigger now, but no where near is thick as my 9.1 brand spankin' new Beal Joker.
The Complete Dry whatever has also stood very well, when it comes to ice craggin' in Fin (no multipitch stuff).
I bought one of these for Kalymnos after being recommended for their durability. It's the best rope I've bought, still looks brand new after 10 days of abuse on pretty sharp slabs and falling on the overhanging stuff :D
