Had the previous 10mm Smart too. This one is slightly thinner and different color. Not too thick, smooth operation (but not too smooth like some thin coated stuff) and inexpensive. Just be aware that it is uncoated, so heavier in the rain/when wet and easier to get dirty. Just use a rope bag to keep it clean. Did come with 3 stickers on each end of the rope; remove them so the rope doesn't get stuck on the anchors on sports routes.
Bought this rope to cut it in half and use it as a gym rope. Couldn’t go wrong with the price. Currently no issues with the rope.
This rope wears out so easily, had to cut it down loads in a short trip. Core shot after a weeks use. Never buying Tendon again.
I've purchased an "entry" rope here and there (Rocklight something) and usually they're terrible. Really stiff, poor handling etc. Initial impression for this is great. Made in CZ and the hand feels much better. Hard to do better at this price!
