Hey all.
Was thinking of buying a set of doubles and have come across the brand 'tendon'. They seem to be a bit cheaper than other brands but was just wondering about quality??? Does anyone have any experience with these ropes they care to offer? Would you recommend 'tendon'?

Cheers!

I have a 10.5mm x 60m lead line and a 10.5mm x 60m static line and they are as good as any other rope i have used before, including, beal, mammut and stirling.

Yep, I have a10.5 60m, all good. They meet and exceed all relevant standards (proper standards, not like those dodgy ropes from the choice scam).

I have the tendon doubles 8.somethings - I'd recommend them and haven't had any problems, they haven't fluffed and handle well, must admit we usually climb on our singles

I have Tendon 10mm x 60m, handles and wears well. Also used thinner Tendon doubles, same deal. I'd recommend them and the Aus importer/vendor, climbinganchors.com.

Same here: I have 9mm x 50m (now in several pieces) and 10mm x 70m semi-static, and a 10.5mm 50m from climbinganchors.com.au, all good.

I've got a 10.2mm Ambition and 2x 8.5mm Master
Can't fault them, other than the label for the rating (eg double/twin/single etc) comes off after a few uses.

Tendon ropes are f&*&&*ing great.

Singles and doubles. Give Steve a call at Climbing Anchors.

Doubles are particularly great: supple and less prone to twisting, kinking etc than Edelrid or Mammut.

I'm yet to see a rope where they dont. Anyway you'd have to have quite a few ropes to forget what they are!

I agree with this, I have no problems remembering. My old BD rope marker lasted much much longer, which is the reason I raised the point.
If feeling generous, you may lend your ropes to someone, and they may like to know if the ropes are rated as halves or twins, or both.

Dave - remember to yellow and blue ropes you used so much in the Grose....... well, firstly, they are mine. Secondly, they are also tendon.

my new 10mm static has just arrived from climbing anchors. Looks like a great rope and great prompt service

I bought a Tendon Ambition 10.2 early in Febuary this year, and am happy with the purchase. It's been a busy year sports climbing with lots of climbing and dogging.

For the price I've been very happy, as have only had to chop a few meters off it and it's still going strong (although it was a bit scary untill i finally decided to chop it down).

It's not about to give up on me anytime soon either, but I might get a new one for redpointing thru Autumn when temps get back down to reasonable, and rotate the older rope for dogging/warm up laps/gym etc...

I've used Tendon ropes from Climbing Anchors exclusively (well, with the exception of alpine which I unfortunately dont do very often, i use tendon for trad, dogging, walls, photos, rope access etc) for the last few years and couldn't be happier with them or with Steve's service and prices
