Tendon 10mm x 50m Smart
Allcord Ltd, Jun 2009
The Smart is Tendon's entry-model single rope. It has a remarkably high specification for such a competitively priced rope.
As with all Tendon climbing ropes, the standard finish of the Smart provides a degree of water and abrasion resistance as compared to the standard models of most other brands which offer virtually no water resistance at all.
TENDON MIDPOINT MARKING:
The halfway-point of the length of this rope is clearly marked with a different colour. This increases safety when lowering/abseiling from routes, by warning the belayer of the length of rope remaining. This feature of Tendon can be particularly useful in sport climbing.
A highly competitively priced rope
