Like a favorite old sweatshirt...
When I began recreational tree climbing, a 120' hank of safety blue was my first choice. I like it. It's comfortable, familiar, and safe. like an old sweatshirt.
After using static line for rescue for so many years, I was really surprised at how soft the hand of the Safety Blue was. It ties easily and holds knots well. At first I thought it was slippery, but then I realized that it was the abrasion resistant coating. I use a Petzl ascender on my foot loop and this rope is holding up very well. No pulls or loose fibers.
At the risk of forsaking my favorite old sweathirt, I bought a second hank of High V Safety Blue. My wife can use it when we climb together. Good Rope - period.
