9.9 - 60m Climbing Rope is rated out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ryan from Everything you could ask for in work-horse of a rope I would be very surprised if anyone who picks up this rope for the first time isn't immediately impressed by it's soft supple feel and electric blue sheen. It seems to strike a nice balance between a beefier mid-10mm and uber light sub 9mm rope. It's smooth running when feeding out line for leader and looks like it will be a great work-horse of a rope. I haven't used it enough to comment on overall durability, but I trust BD on their design for heavy use for year-round climbing. If you're looking for a good day-in-day-out crag rope, this is a strong contender.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jerry from Exceptional Rope This rope was touted as being a heavy use, every day rope so I purchased it and took it climbing in the eastern Sierra. After 9 days of dragging it over Sierra granite it still looked good but was very dirty. I returned home and put it in the front loader and it came out looking like the day I bought it. Also, it is very supple and feels like a smaller diameter rope.
