PMI Elite Rope Review - No 224

PMI Elite 9.4, $199

Summary: Weighing in at a scant 57 grams per meter, the PMI Elite was one of the lightest ropes in the test. It also provided the cushiest catch due to its 35-percent dynamic elongation. That cush comes at a cost, though, as the rope tended to flatten out during extended work sessions, regaining its shape overnight.

Pros: Light.

Cons: Flattened out during extended working sessions.

Overall grade: B
