Any idea what happened to Infinity ropes? I believe they were wild countrys own brand of ropes, not to be confused with Mammut infinity ropes.
Pretty much the only info I can google is a review on ukc by Jack for their super skinny single.
The wild country website seems to have wiped all history of the ropes as if they never existed.

I have a single (black, with red and white specks) and I want to know the thickness. Feels like 10mm but not 100% sure.

In reply to deacondeacon:
My guess would be that WC realised they were rubbish and tried to remove all traces of the ropes having ever existed to save as much embarrassment as possible. I had a pair of the half ropes, they were the worst ropes I've had. Got Mammut now, wish I'd gone with them in the first place.

If you're stuggling to find any info you could try this: http://archive.org/web/web.php

If it doesnt have an archive of the WC/Infinity site then you could try checking a few retailers too e.g. Needlesports, thats where I had mine from, so if there's an archived version it should have specs for the rope

In reply to deacondeacon: I know the rope you mean, I have one myself - it is indeed 10.0mm, I forget the name (Sprint maybe). Infinity ropes were made by Sterling to Wild Country's specs IIRC. It's one of the best ropes i've ever used, i'll definitely buy from Sterling next time I need one.

In reply to Sean_J: P.S. Here is an archive of the 2007 Wild Country website, at the Infinity Ropes page (ignore the strange looking URL). The rope you have is the Sprint 10mm.

In reply to all:
thanks a lot, while you guys were posting I also found it, and yes It's the infinity 10mm.
I'd never even heard of the archived webpages, going to have a play on it now!
