    So I’m working with a highly reputable rope manufacturer to develop a custom, high performance canyoneering rope. For the initial run of rope, I’m looking for people willing to be testers. Ideally people who get out at least 25 days a year. High end users who Ghost a lot and are into exploration and advanced techniques. The idea is that we need to put serious mileage on this rope quickly so we can move on to making any changes including braiding tension, fiber types, and colors.

    The goal is achieve a high performance rope that is valuable where it counts. I don’t believe that the optimal combination of value and performance currently exists in a canyon rope. I am aiming for that sweet spot.

    You will need to pay for this rope but it will be wholesale, which is astonishingly affordable. I’m just looking to cover my initial cost in this process.

    They are ready to run rope as soon as I give them the green light.


    If you are interested, please contact me via email at atwoodgear@gmail.com and I can provide more information/details

    Serious inquiries only please.

    Regards,

    Taylor

    UPDATE:

    Thank you everyone for your willingness to help. I currently have enough people among whom to distribute the first test run of rope.


    I'll keep this thread updated as this project progresses.
