Good stuff but not my favorite

This was my first climbing rope. It's a beautiful rope out of the bag, very soft in the hand. After it breaks in it tends to harden up. After it's broken in I find that it tends to seize up a Blake's Hitch when tied into itself in a traditional closed loop DRT system. I find it best for a closed hitch (or "advanced hitch") split tail for DRT climbing. I find it to be a bit heavy compared to the 11mm ropes. I used it for a long lanyard and found it to still be too heavy. Work climbers like it for its low stretch, as a rec climber I like the slight give that the other 11mm ropes seem to have, not as hard on the body.
