Great rope for Rope Wrench, Rope Runner, Hitch Cli

Great rope if you're doing both MRS (Double Rope) or SRS (Single Rope). I like this line over Yale's sumac/poison Ivy/Blue Moon because it is the only rope that wouldn't slip/creep using the Rope Runner. Tachyon has been the most consistent rope for me when switching between climbing systems. It works flawlessly with a rope wrench, rope runner (doesn't creep), hitch climber & even with a blake's hitch. I'm about 190lbs and other ropes tend to creep on the rope runner - especially after long decents - this rope does not do that. Great Rope. I've had it in the ASH color, this color (orange) & the green.

Great rope but pricey

Real nice rope for SRT and DRT. The coating on the rope is fairly slick. Some bounce on SRT climbs. Stays nice and round under load. No milking issues. Great rope but a little pricey. Very light weight for the size. Worth a try, but blaze or bandit would offer better value for your money.
