Tendon Rope - Ambition 9.8mm

Post by hypro » Tue May 31, 2011 5:19 pm

Has anyone ever tried this rope?? The Tendon Company used to be Lanex. They use a "teflon nanotechnology" to better protect/waterproof (so they say) the rope. forums on rc.com speak well of the brand but i was hoping someone might have tried the ""'Tendon Ambition 9.8'""

Are you Canadian or did they start distributing them in the US?

I've had several Lanex/Tendon ropes over the years (Including the one you ask of) and was very satisfied with them.

I just got 2 tendon Smart 9.8mm lites off the clymb (they messed up my order and sent two). I'm taking them to the gorge this weekend. I'll post again after I try them out. www.theclymb.com sells them for $120. If you need an invite to the clymb try this http://www.theclymb.com/invite-from/cdcphillips if you make an account and invite friends and they make orders you get free cash towards more climbing gear. Pay it forward (literally).

If your in sweet Kentucky, you best give me a call. I think Linda got pretty excited too when I told her you'd be back for a visit.

Ropes work great. Really nice through my grigri 1. Smooth and the auto lock function was able to get a full bite even tho its a 9.8. I have read that grigri 1's can slip a little on a 9.8.

chordae tendineae to the filum terminale.

i once wrote a love poem to a nursing student along these lines.

that's all-
training is for people who care, i have a job.
