Topic - Half Rope Advice Sought.

ned taylor - on 16 May 2013
I'm planning on buying a pair of half ropes and was wondering if anyone had any advice on picking between brands, or if there a good review anywhere?

Searching through the forums/ ukc articles/ the web generally, there are lots of articles on what type (single/ half /twin) of rope to pick, and ways of choosing between different ropes based on their individual stats, but really I'm looking for first-hand advice on different ropes.

-Lots of friends have Mammut Genesises (Genesees/Genesi??), they seem to have all the usually good stats, with relatively high UIAA falls listed at 15-16.
-I've heard good things about the handling of Edelrid ropes.
-There are some good deals on Tendon ropes at the moment.
-Another friend swears by Sterling.

So what to do..

Cheers
