Topic - Different size ropes

GridNorth - on 28 Jun 2013
I have a 7.5 "skinny" which is a few years old and a newish Mammut Genesis 8.5. The older rope has furred up somewhat and the two ropes feel similar and look the same.

I know that it is not recommended to use different diameter ropes with an overhand knot for abseiling but when does it become an issue? Has anyone any practical experience of this?
