I'm considering buying a Tendon 9.2 Master - I'm in the market for a super light, compact rope for alpine trad routes (I realize they make a 8.9mm but the impact force is quite a bit higher). This rope is on the far end of the skinny/light section but is thie best by far (from what I've seen) in impact force so I'm pretty sold... just curious if anyone has had any experience with these ropes and would care to comment on them.

Thanks and climb safe!

John

I have had this rope since june, and taken it up probably 12-15 alpine routes 800' or longer in that time, as well as cragging. Even on lots of coarse granite and with occasional snow uses, it is holding up amazingly well. I have been really impressed. The mid mark, like on every other rope I have used, does fade with time. blakeherrington

Thanks Blake - exactly what I was looking for... I'll be ordering one of these puppies up this weekend!

Best,
