/ Rope Dry Tretment Question
You can buy Nikwax rope proofing to re proof a rope but I dont think you can emulate factory dry treating which proofs all of the fibres before they are wound into a rope.
Rope proofing doesnt come cheap either. you need a lire per rope (50m)
I have used it but cant say Ive been out in wet enough conditions to notice a difference.
I would suggest you pay a bit extra in the future and get a good dry treated rope.
Have used nikwax a couple of times to reproof mammut dri treated ropes for alps and Scottish winter, as others have said its ok but not as good as manufactures original treatment.
So Wud go for dri treated ropes if buying new, its worth it.
