Editing this thread to introduce a new line of high performance custom canyoneering rope to be sold exclusively by Atwood Gear. The idea behind having custom ropes made exclusively for Atwood came from a belief that that a rope with the ideal combination of performance and value did not exist in the market. So I contacted several rope manufacturers and found one willing to partner with me in this endeavor. They have a long standing reputation as a premier, US based, manufacturer of premium quality ropes for a wide range of industries. They are ISO 9001 certified and their products meet or exceed applicable standards of a wide array of certifications for the industries they serve. We started with something simple and are working together to create ropes of greater performance and value than any other on the market. The first model being introduced is The Grand, as in Grand Canyon. The ideal rope for skilled canyoneers who venture far from the beaten path and need a rope that can meet the performance demands and weight premium of such endeavors. The Grand has a diameter of 8mm, a polyester sheath and a parallel Dyneema core which give it exceptional strength and static properties, even for its exceptional light weight. The sheath mass is a whopping 63% ! It weighs a scant 2.65 lbs per 100 feet (39g/meter), has an average breaking strength of 5400 lbs, and static elongation of a mere 0.93% @ 300 lbF, making it the lightest as well as one of the strongest, and most static canyon ropes on the market. All of this coming at the exceptional price of $1.20/ft More models are in R&D and coming for the new year.
