...a couple reviews from climbers finding it to be a really tough skinny with maxims/NE's soft catch and without the excess stretch of most skinnys...

Thanks - wish I could find one in a store to check out. For the record though - Maxim/NE has the highest Impact Force on the market, i.e., the least soft catch. This is the cost of the low stretch. However if you have a decent belayer who knows modern sport dynamic technique I don't think that really matters that much.

To bearbreeder - that's great info from Mammut - thanks for posting. Since I core shot my Joker (35% sheath) quickly I probably don't want to go with a thinner sheath! I had a Revelation and my partner has one now - nice tough rope but I just wish it didn't feel like a steel cable and held knots better.
