I use Escalator static line, and it is amazing, I haven't done a lot of climbing on it yet but it is still very nice, It goes like wire under load then when you work it a little bit it softens up and becomes workable. Very easy to rope walker and footlock, the add is true it takes less energy to get to the top
Depends on what length you want really mate some lines are good over short distance but will bounce like mad over longer ones, sterling htp is very good but has a thinnrr diameter if your planning on working Srt, heard goid things about KmIII and yale kernmaster
Just reading on the yale website about Kernmaster its the highest rated rope for dynamic schock absorbtion of all their climbing lines, does this mean that xtc which is one of the lowest is more static than kernmaster which is advertised as a static line or am i being thick
Kernmaster is static under low load but dynamic under a shock load or something along those lines bro, it's specs are pretty good but it will be interesting to see how it goes with friction cord. Got some on order so will be interesting to compare with the escalator, normal double braids, globe etc..
For all splicing and climbing related stuff (from trees to volcanos) [firstname.lastname@example.org[/email]
Ian uses it with his wrench he would be the man to ask i was thinking of getting some aswell, thats the problem i have found with the wrench is the compatobilty of friction cords to static kernmantle lines
