new rope

Recommended Posts

iam thinking about getting a new main rope, 

i am using the non ce cougar blue at the moment and iam happy enough with it.

i climb a mix of srt on the mechanical bulldog bone device and drt on a lock jack sport.

i find the profile of the cougar goes a bit rectangular in the bulldog bone which is slightly annoying so a rope which didnt do this would be a plus.

it must be brightly coloured and have a splice.

any suggestions thanks carl

I climb daily on a lockjack and also have a bulldog bone but hardly ever use it, I’ve probably used it a handful of times since I brought it. I’ve been on Teufelberger Fly for the last 12 months and like it. Bedded in well with the lockjack and runs through nice and freely with a semi worn cam. Only negative I have found is when the rope is wet it can be a bit jerky but that is fairly standard with the lockjack and most ropes to be fair. I’ve haven’t use cougar blue with the lockjack so can’t comment if they are similar I’m afraid.

Yes I think I do but only because it doesn’t get flattened.
It’s made by Tuefelberger.

just had a look at the x static and realised it dosent have a splice neither  does the Courant Squir V2, i like the sound of these ropes but i really do like my splice as i normally descend double rope, plus drt climbing of small trees,

so any other ropes to look at or should i consider getting two ropes one spliced for drt and a non spliced for srt.

i know a lot of this is down to personal preference but always good to have other peoples input.

thanks carl

well i got a new rope, i went for the xstatic, ive only used it a bit but it seems nice and definantly runs through the bulldog better going up and down.

it does seem a bit slippier in the hand compared to the cougar blue.

the colour is a bit weird!! half expected it to come with some 3d glasses.

i do miss my eye splice so iam considering getting a shorter length of the fly rope with an eye in for drt.

thanks for the help choosing, carl
