New England Tachyon rope

My Yale fire rope is on its way out and am curious if the Tachyon is any good, I know it's 11.5 mm, lighter and stronger. I climb with the vt system and I thought I'd ask for your opinion before I buy.

Re: New England Tachyon rope

I wasn't aware there's two types, I think I'm after something that's not so bouncy. Cheers for the up date

Poison Ivy also good, plus it also comes in a snazzy hot pink.

Re: New England Tachyon rope

Cheers Peter, Pink would be better I suppose, least it wouldn't be camouflage in the tree as the green. Less likely to cut it

Re: New England Tachyon rope

Is that the regular tachyon and not the treuflberger version?
