Assuming you don't nik it, then it will be good for years in theory, although there will be a time limit where it should be replaced

Thanks guys appreciate your input, truth be told I'd be happy enough using my old ropes but i work for a large corporation who can afford new gear and have a big safety culture so was wondering if and what the official length of time u should retire an un nicked rope after? I realise people who are paying for kit themselves will be happy and keen to use older gear

Used to guys fragging their ropes after 6months ( ' I didn't see that razor wire !' ) think it's 4 or 5 yrs on Loler 98, but that's full UV exposure daily, so really don't worry myself as I look after my own kit. K
