New climbing rope

Recommended Posts

After a new rope. Has anyone tried or have an opinion on Stein Utility ACR 12.4 mm compared with say, Marlow Vega 11.7? I don't climb every day and tend to favour DRT.




PS if this thread already exists can somebody please direct me to it - I can't find it

I've used both but preferred the Marlow out of the 2. There are better ropes out there than both of them though.

Nicer feel in the hand for the most part, and knotability. Can't comment on longevity as I discarded the above 2 in favour of my existing ropes.

New England is good stuff but im more a fan of Yale cordage. The blue tongue or its variants are amongst the nicest ropes i've used for double rope technique
