Hi,

Anyone know where in Canada and failing that where in the USA i can buy a Tendon Smart 10mm Single Rope? I have one, love it, having beaten her up for a couple years I'm going to use her for top roping and treat myself to a new gym lead/sport rope. The retailer i used to buy it from no longer sell it. I think its a great rope at an unbeatable price.

If you feel there is another rope of comparable quality that is at he $85 price point let me know and I'll consider

Thank you good sir, called and ordered today, went with a black diamond talon hook as the add on for free shipping, been scared of hook moves for a while but time to get serious with my aiding, ... i have the hardest time getting the image of the hook meeting my face in a bloody collision when I am dangling off one.

Scratch Above

I told Lacordee it wasn't online when i called in the order, they emailed 2 hours later, they updated the site and put it back online

Code Natur3 is still valid, for $15 off your order.

was in a saucy mood, decided against the hook because they have x4s and i don't have .3 and lets face it, gear is fucking sexy!

A curious rope though, IŽve 3 of the things and they somehow just get softer to handle as they get older. No idea about the softness of the falls, I donŽt do much of that!
Certainly the most popular budget rope youŽll see around my part of Germany for sure. IŽd buy another if I hadnŽt just bought one!

its a good budget sport rope ... feeds decently through a gri gri, pretty soft catches and ive fallen on my a decent amount

here we are taking midnight whippers on that rope on a 5.12 roof



it does get a bit fuzzier and stiffer IME around pitch 500+ though

Bought one of these about a year ago as a present for my girlfriend. It was her first rope. I've been happy enough with how it has worn over the last year, that I'm buying two more for me. At this price -- how can I lose?

for canadians ... its 70$ till the 24th ... be warned that it everyone ive told the deal to is buying multiples so the deal may get sold out soon

10mm 60m soft catching rope ... ive used mine for over 1000 pitches in squish, rockies, skaha and yos before the sheath finally blew ...

add a few things so that its over 100$ and you get free shipping ... or buy 2 or 3

you arent gonna find ANY certified 60m climbing rope for cheaper ... the cheapest 60m climbing rope at MEC is 123$
