    I went and looked and it seems all my spools are the Neon Yellow w Blue Tracer, although to my eye, the color is more like Chartreuse.

    Grand Rope has been out of stock for a bit, I've emailed Atwood Gear with no response. Does anyone here know if Grand Rope is coming back, or is it gone for good?
    Over the past year and a half, I've used the rope extensively and really have come to love it. Especially when comparing it to other 8mm canyon ropes on the market.

    My apologies for the poor communication. I’m planning another big order of rope this fall but need to secure enough pre-orders for the funds first.

    Email us again and let me know what you need. So I can get your in the pre-order

    You just need to sign up for Atwood Prime. Your gear will arrive at the top of your next canyon just in time, guaranteed, whether that is in 3 days or in 6 months. You just have to make sure you invite @Bootboy on the trip.

    I’m working on it. But securing a production schedule slot, MOQ, and some capital, are just a few of the things I have to juggle before I’m able to pull the trigger.

    Is there interest in doing pre orders?

    What's the minimum for a pre-order?

    I wouldn’t expect a minimum for individual
    orders.

    I would just need a critical mass of orders to secure the funds for an order.

    I'm interested and would be willing to do a preorder.

    I'm looking for a 200m rope for some Death Valley canyons with long drops. Can anyone comment on the durability/performance of this rope in areas with sharp/abrasive rock compared to something like Imlay Slyther or BW Extreme? I expect the technora sheath ropes to wear better, but I'd be surprised if they are better enough to justify the price jump...

    I have yet to retire a rope with an aramid sheath.
    Have a BWCE with over 70 descents, with it as the primary working rope; still supple, still smooth operation.
    You spend money on it, yes; but you only spend it once.
