Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sport climbing rope I work at a gear shop that doesn't carry sterling ropes, but I pay full price for sterling.This rope, although a 9.8, and low Uiaa fall ratings of 6 fall, this rope makes you feel safe. If this is your only rope and all you do is sport climbing, then this rope is perfect. This should not be your rope of choice for sport climbing and top roping, a 10.2 sterling kosmos if you do both top roping and sport, a 10.4 sterling marathon if you do much more top roping than sport, and a 10.7 sterling marathon ultra if this is the only rope you see yourself buying in the next 5 years and you are going to be doing a lot of climbing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first rope and I'm loving it This is the first rope I've ever bought. Perfect weight/stiffness combo. It gives great catches as well. Everyone I went climbing with this past weekend loved it. The downside is that it is kind of kinky. I've run it through a few times and climbed on it this past weekend, and it still kinks in some places. I'm hoping the kinks will work themselves out after a few more uses. I love this rope! Also, the rasta color looks great in person. I've gotten a lot of compliments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rope I've used lots of gym ropes and only a few outdoor ones so I am no guru but I like this a lot more than my previous 10.2mm sterling. This new 9.8 feels significantly thinner and feeds much better through both my atc devices (metolius BRD Black diamond Guide Belay),,,,Has tooooooooooons of stretch note the illustration of the word stretch as how I feel this rope. To be fair its pretty new but man does this thing give some cushion when you take a fall. ,,,,It seemed to repel dust/dirt pretty well and I like the color but it does seem to hide wear which maybe isn't a good thing. I guess if I did it again Id get a lighter color but I do love the way it looks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rope for sport climbing This was my first rope purchase and a friend of mine recommended it, specifically in bicolor. I'm really glad he did because I love having that feature on this rope. I've never had a rope before and most people that saw the rope seemed jealous to have that feature, so I assume most people enjoy this as well. ,,I only sport climb and have used it for about a month's use total this summer and it seems to be holding up really well. I wouldn't know how fast a rope normally wears, but I am happy with this. Feels pretty good falling on it as well. I'd recommend this to anyone if you want a quality rope.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Rope, Super happy with it. Got this rope a few months back and I love it. I got the Yellow Bicolor, and the only reason it doesn't get five stars is that it is already showing dirt...which really is only an aesthetic problem. Also I'm sure that darker colors wouldn't show dirt as soon. This 9.8 feeds more easily than my old 10.2 but is caught by the belay device just as well. It is definitely a stiff rope, which I like, it seems to make it easier to untie a figure 8 after a fall or two. Rope seems to be tough, no fuzz showing on it yet which i'm fairly sure is a result of the dry treatment. Best part: its noticeably lighter than my old 10.2 both when clipping and while hiking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a perfect rope for almost any situation! This is a fantastic rope! My first use of it was climbing some over hanging/inverted sport routes and the rope preformed beautifully. The weight of the 9.8 is noticeably lighter then a 10.2 while pulling it through a draw on a sport route. I also like the diameter because I personally feel that it is super solid and more durable then a 9.4. and a 10.4 is overkill for outdoor. Sterling makes one of, if not the best ropes on the market. I've known guys who have gotten many seasons of hard climbing out of their sterlings and nothing else can compare. I've taken many whippers on another sterling 9.8 and it holds up great and finally had to retire it last season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone loves this rope I picked one up this summer and I love it. I've used it on lots of sport routes in Boulder Canyon and Rummney, as well as some trad routes at the Gunks, and it's fantastic everywhere. Nice, soft falls, but it's got the perfect amount of stiffness to make clipping easy. I've climbed with lots of people with WAY more experience than I do (including a few part-time guides), and they all say my rope is one of their favorites. You won't be disappointed. ,,,,The colors are far more electric than the pictures shows. I have the bicolor blue and it looks fantastic against a dark rock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All its cracked up to be. All in all, Sterling's made a great rope here. Plenty light for working sport routes and the sheath stiffness makes clipping a dream. ,,,,I do think I'll be retiring this rope in a bit less time than I would had I purchased a thicker 10.2 or something, but it has definitely put up with some heavy abuse in the past year-- and is still giving me nice soft catches. ,,,,Bonus: The pink color is awesome. Everyone compliments me on it. (Plus, if you're a guy, you get double bad ass points for sending hard routes with an electric pink rope ;).
