Tendon Ropes

G'day, wondered if anyone knew much about "Tendon" ropes ie: quality compared to other brands?

Heres a topic from a while back which might have some useful info for you:

Do a search. I'm pretty sure there has been a thread on them before.

I have a 9.4mm single and a pair of 8.5mm doubles and am about to buy a 10mm single.

So you could probably say that I like them .

For the dollars they're simply impossible to beat, in my experience you're looking at performance near to or on par with the premium brands (eg. mammut, sterling) but at prices similar to entry-level ropes.

Furthermore Steve Hawkshaw from climbinganchors is fantastic to deal with (prompt, honest, reliable) and his business actively supports the climbing community through rebolting initiatives.

In short, go for it!

I have a 9.7 that I use about 50% of the time and it's been excellent. I'm not a fan of sub 10mm ropes (at least until I'm sub 85kg) and I was hoping it would wear out, but it's srtill going strong. I'll take it on a 2 month road trip next month.
