Petzl Fuse Rope (9.4mm) -

No one likes to climb with more weight than necessary, and Petzl built the Fuse 9.4mm Dry Climbing Rope for those who want the low weight without sacrificing durability. Thanks to a Duratec dry treatment, this Petzl rope stays bone dry on dripping wet ice climbs and has a reduced sheath friction for better longevity on the rock. Sport climbers, trad climbers, and ice climbers alike find this rope to be a great performer at 56 g/m. Plus, Petzl added a center mark to help you set up rappels quicker and make them safer.

For such a skinny and light single rope, the FUSE can withstand the rigors of multiple falls or endless pitches over rough rock. Its burly, tight sheath makes it perfect for sport climbing or fast-and-light adventure climbing. Stiffer than most,it practically clips itself to draws and glides effortlessly through carabiners.


Duratec Dry treatment helps prevent the rope from absorbing water – which can weaken a rope and make it difficult to handle in freezing conditions. Before a Petzl rope is constructed, the core and sheath strands are individually treated, providing water repellency in case you find yourself in a deluge, snowfield or on a dripping ice chandelier. 

All Petzl ropes are butterfly coiled in the factory and are ready to use straight out of the package. This coiling method means no more tangled mess when you first use your new rope. Gone is the tedious operation of carefully uncoiling, flaking and reflaking your new rope, only to end up with annoying kinks. With a Petzl rope, just tie-in and start climbing.

To help facilitate descents, the middle of each Petzl cord is marked with a black bar. Even with this marking, it’s sometimes a good idea to tie a knot at the end of the rope as an additional safety measure.

I've been using this rope for about 2 seasons on rock and one in the winter. It has held up pretty well. I like the size for all around climbing, it is skinny enough that its not too heavy, feeds through belay devices well, and doesn't feel like a ball and chain holding you down on lead.
The dry treatment was pretty well shot by the end of the first full season. The ropes durability is OK but not great, I have not been impressed with the durability of petzl ropes in general. I will end up retiring this rope with about 100 days of leading on it and a couple of falls.
I think there are better ropes for the money.

Spectacular rope. Incredible dynamic stretch and super lightweight. The rope is tough, durable and ideal for just about all the climbing you can throw at it. And its super lightweight making it useful for a mountaineering trip where budget doesn't support the purchase of twins/half ropes.
I've set up top ropes, sport climbs, drug the rope across the country (literally from Mass to Idaho)and had a lot of great climbs with it. I expect a lot more before I retire it. I even used it to teach the lady friend to lead (pictured).
Get this rope for satisfactory sport climbs, trad climbs whether you're doing a five minute or five mile approach.

A very versatile cord. The thickness is just right to take it into the alpine; not too skinny and frail to not take a beating, but burly enough to last. It will not stand up to repeated whippers and abuse like a 9.8 will, but that is inherent in choosing a rope this size. No skinny cord will last to long life abuse like a fatter cord no matter what. I do like the feel of this rope as well, handles very nicely. Overall I would say this rope has treated me quite nicely, in both the 60m and 70m lengths, you can not go wrong choosing this cord.

This rope is BURLY. i know that's not what you're supposed to say about a 9.4 rope, but you could almost use this as a youth group top rope rig! just don't hog the good climbs. The trade off is that it can get pretty kinky at times. when it does, just run it through the anchors after you lower and it's great until the next time it kninks up. i got around two seasons out of it. all my friends were blown away too. that being said, we all still buy whatever is on sale when we need a new rope.

really great rope. i have the 70m one and it works best in alpine or multipitch climbs because it is really lightweight and easy to handle, the mark in the middle has not wonr out and i had this rope for three years of intense use.
rasonably durable, but there are some more durable in the market.
never had an issue with it. would strongly recomend someone to buy it

Great rope

This rope is treating me very well. It is still holding up after an entire season of climbing in the desert. Very lightweight. Only thing you have to watch for is the rate it slides through your belay device on rappel. I had to buy gloves because it gets so hot when the rope is running rather quickly through the device. Bottom line: great rope.

I really like the feel of this rope, soft and supple n the hand. Great water treatment for ski mountaineering and alpine routes. Light enough to carry 5000 feet up so we could use two 60m ropes to rappel into this line, first descent awaiting.

Thin rope that bites belay devices. This rope catches better than a 9.8 edelrid I have, fends off dirt better too. I am happy I went with this over the nomad.

Like in the review below, this is right on with the weight, size, and performance. First rope purchase for myself and have loved it so far.
