/ Cheap Abseil / Static Rope
Before I commit to buy, can anyone see any problems with this cheap ab rope?
Or know of any other cheap deals?
Saying That £40 is super cheap..... I think the best deal I found was about £120 for 200m.
Would you could it failing and you dieing as a problem? You don't know how it has been stored, and it seems like the company sells an odd number of items.
Something you are going to have your entire weight on with nothing else stopping you going splat, I wouldn't risk it but I am paranoid.
No idea, though i can reccomend Caving Supplies in Buxton (www.caving-supplies.co.uk/) as a place to buy cheap static rope. They somehow manage to sell Mammut static for significantly less than the trade price of Beal ropes...Still, they seem like decent ropes to me!
I've a 50m 10.5mm Beal Antipodes static/caving/rigging rope for sale if you're interested? Used 4 times and still in great condition. :)
Stored properly, Nylon does not degrade over time.
Too true. Provided it was kept in a dark place in a stable environment, and not made by the same people who make Cheese Strings!
My first climbing rope was a Marlow. Its a reputable make.
