Yeah the psycho rope was bad - especially the way it grabbed your ankles- indestructible though.  Unfortunately reputations and initial impressions take a long time to change.  That's why us old farts will never buy New England, PMI, Maxim or Petzl.  And Sterling and Mammut can do no wrong.  My Tusk does seem a bit psycho though...

John, having used Eric's rope, I can tell you the Tusk deos not handle or wear like the Galaxy.
Honestly, I cannot say it is a bad rope, it is just not as good as the more expensive Mammut ropes.

Right you are.  I was in high school and working as a dishwasher for $2.25 an hour in the 70's when I bought a Beal rope for big bucks that wore out in less than a month.

 How many do you think I have purchased since?
