    Edelrid Swift Protect Pro Dry 8.9mm

    Bought 80M for Kalymnos trip. Heavily used over 14 day trip and several times since. Feel very confident in this despite diameter. Low drag and good handling with no excessive kinking. Very happy with this purchase. Using Edelrid MegaJul belay device which works very nicely with this rope too,
