X static VS non ce cougar

Recommended Posts

For those of you in the know - are these comparable ropes?

 

I've used the non-ce cougar for srt a lot over the last few years and it works well for drt too. I still swop a lot between the two and don't want a bouncy rope for srt! If there is a ce rope that doesn't bounce srt I'd use it rather than non ce and it's new rope time!

 

Cheers me dears!

I wonder if it means that they just don’t offer a splice, not there isn’t a splice for it.  Teufelberger doesn’t state what type of construction it is, could someone enlighten me, also about Drenaline’s construction, double braids or parallel strands?

I prefer x static after a good few years climbing on non CE cougar , definitely a better rope for ascenders and a better rope in the hands than all the CE statics on the market I’ve tried which is a fair trade off for choosing over against the cougar ....which is the cougars strongest point in my view.

I think Honey's will splice any rope so that why I was surprised the didn't offer it....anyway just got on with buying some non-ce cougar again....i want a splice!

I think Drenaline has a cover and a core so that makes it kernmantle?

Kernmantels and double braids both have cores, the db core is usually a 12 strand hollow braid, the kern has individual twisted strands.  Another rope construction with a cover and core is core dependent ropes, with a 12 strand hollow braid also but the the tech core carries most of the load.

 

Saw a video on Treebuzz of Drenaline splices testing at an average of 6000lbs, a lot better than the Slaice.
