Metolious Monster

Post by Cleveland » Mon May 05, 2008 7:14 pm

Does anyone use the Metolious Monster rope? My buddy was thinking of getting one, and I was just wanting some feedback on how people like this rope. Any help is greatly appreciated. Especially the sarcastic kind :lol:

No idea. However, I'll say that my new Maxim Apex 9.9 70 is the first rope I've ever used that refused to kink. Even after pulling it thru the "one quick link" anchors at Volunteer Wall...

That's pretty damn impressive. What's the rope stretch like on a fall?

Truthfully, after a few weeks use, its killin the Sterling Rope I used to climb on... and I loved the Sterling. I haven't paid specific attention to the stretch during a fall. Feels average, whatever that is.

The other thing I'm diggin is that it doesn't take on aluminum like other ropes. The double dry treatment wasn't slick at all (which I was afraid of)... but seems to keep it cleaner.

i won a monster rope as a door prize at a comp. we used it for a weekend, and are now trying to sell it. the rope seemed fine; however, ours was a 10.2, which is a bit thick for my taste..

Good ropes, but the ones I have owned have had issues with the sheath doing funny things like getting bunched up and causing weird lumps in the rope. Metolius replaced my first one and I just stopped using the 2nd one. Edelweiss is the superior rope.
Oh man, he is messing that up. However, he is missing his left leg so that way would probably be harder for him. SCIN, just before spraying some beta for a climber doing a route the WRONG way.

I have a 60m 10.2 and the sheath seems to fray easily. I liked my Mammut better.
I try to be a good man but all that comes
of trying is I feel more guilty.

I don't know if I would trust odub-- he gets paid to say stuff about how his ropes are!


anyway- how do you guys feel about the metolious rope markers? I guess they would work better than having a black mark on the center of your rope-- that just blends in with the dirt.

Metolius was a distributor for Mammut and I think the rope your question refers to is manufactured by Mammut as well.
