Honestly, what more do you want from a rope - good amount of elongation (though 9.6-9.9s seem to be 'softer' on big sport falls), and tough/thick enough to not worry about setting up some rough topropes or lowering off some sharp things - had this rope about 2 years now on british and spanish limestone, california granite and volcanic and in the gym, and after checking it recently, it shows practically no wear - tough workhorse that is light enough to use as a sport cragging rope - maybe too heavy for those 'serious' redpoint attempts, but c'mon, I'd be flattering myself if I thought a few ounces of rope would make the sending difference - bottom line...good rope for the dough!
I have had this rope about a year and from weekend shelf trips to afternoon trad missions in Boulder canyon to projecting routes in the park it has faired well under moderate to heavy usage. Dynamic enough to boost your leading confidence with the soft catches, sturdy enough so that everyone in your group can lap the TR you just set up at the creek, without losing 6 ft of progress every time they rest. The thicker diameter ensures that your sheathing will show signs of use far before the performance of your rope, this is typically my go to rope.
Solid workhorse, great moderate to entry level rope for any aspiring all rounder
The Edlinger is a solid "day at the crag" kind of rope. It's 35% dynamic feature allows it to catch falls quite well. I personally i have taken a couple of nasty whippers on mine and have found it to have a very soft catch. While not your light weight, super thin, water proof, super amazing rope, I have found the Edlinger to be a solid all arounder. And for such a price, who could ask for more?
This was my first rope I ever bought and I bought it a few years ago. It is low priced and works great! I haven't had any complaints about the rope. It is well made and works how it should! This is a great rope to buy if you don't want to blow a bunch of money on a quality rope! I will buy another one when the time comes to replace my current one.
no middle mark or dry coating, but it is inexpensive, relatively light, and seems to be pretty durable. good rope for what i'm using it for: sending and working sport climbs at the local crag. takes a little breaking in to get the kinks out.
Have owned 6 ropes. Beal is one of my top choices. This one has again not disappointed. Only used a few times so far but so far so good. Researched others before buying and this was the best deal on a good rope.
Take advantage of a discount, which made the price is very good. The rope is great because I bought it but the above is dry, they are great, do not hesitate to buy it. With good elongation and supports well the scrapes
It's not the lightest rope, and it's a bit stiff and stubborn at first, but it's great for gym climbing, top roping, and beginning leading, which is what I've been using it for. Good hand and catches comfortably.
A little stiff when new but seems to soften well. Even without the dry coat it holds up surprisingly well, even on sharp granite. If low on cash but want a dependable rope, this is a good option
Just got this rope, and so far it feels very good. It is very soft and feeds easily through my gear. It feels skinnier than a 10.2 rope.
Will update after I've put a few climbs on it.
