What happened to double ropes? 28-Jun-2018 At 9:33:57 PM Stugang
A related but different observation is that I recently started using an unused 10.5 mm mammut rope I acquired a while back. I only started using it cos I had it and thought Iíd rather trash it at the gym than my nice 9.something single rope.

But ffs it is so totally heavy and fat. Even clipping feels weird and at top of a gym wall it feels like an anchor. It also doesnít hold a bowline nicely without slipping so I now am now using a fig 8. Canít believe my first rope was even fatter at 11mm.

Back on topic...I always have liked having the option of doubles available and reckon these days you could match a skinny single and a super skinny twin/double at the same or less weight than my old school fat boy 11mm. In an ideal world thatís what Iíd own but now need to trash my mammut 10.5to justify the expense.
