Its when the sheath stretches more than the core, resulting in a bit at the end with no core in the sheath. The solution is to recut the rope with a hot knife at the end of the core and re-seal the end.

It happens more with some ropes than others. NE Hi-Vee is pretty low milking, Blaze you will get a fair bit off over time.

Samson Arbormaster. Fat, strong , firm , long wearing and NO milking. The only line out there that you can have spliced on BOTH ends while new (But I don't really care about eyesplices on my climbing lines). New England Safety Blue is also nice line but since I started on Arbormaster nothing else appeals as much.

im unsure if i should go for samson Arbormaster as its seems popular and has good reviews. also its a 12mm line which might be a better then taking the plunge on a 11mm rope and then not getting on with it. but im still tempted to get a velocity rope.
