what rope to buy? 19-Jan-2007 At 10:19:01 AM cheesehead
I think the big gripe with them is they are not smooth, subtle ropes. As Paulie said, like a cable.

Even when praising mine, I have to admit it's a bit on the stiff side, but this is coming down to pure aesthetics. It works just grand.

Yes, Mammut are excellent. I've got a new-found love for Edelrid ropes too. They handle gorgeously. My advice is that this is all nice, but hardly necessary for a first rope.
I'd venture that cable-like ropes will tend to last longer

One area where stiff ropes may be painful is with the rope twisting and knotting (eg, when lowering someone the rope just wants to knot up). That's worth investigating, but I personally haven't noticed this issue to be better or worse with any particular ropes.
