for thinner ropes mammuts are the ones to buy for abrasion resistance ... their 9.5mm infinity is excellent for multi and the smaller sizes feed easier naturally where a bit of stiffness isnt as much an issue ... for 9.8mm+ mammuts are quite stiff IMO, i can just get a new tusk to feed through my smart, and the galaxy gets very stiff after a year or so

handling is an extremely variable thing that depends on the brand, sizing and particular rope ...

as you can see below i owned 5 mammuts (2 8mm, 2 9.5mm, 10mm) last summer and 2 tendon 10.2mm

and the tendon, despite being the thicker rope handled better than the 9.5/10mm mammuts ...

generally the ropes with the "softer" catches handle better IME ... known ropes with "harder" catches such as maxim and some mammuts tend to be quite stiff

course you can always buy from REI or backcountry and call it a day ... as they dont give a damn if you return it Tongue
