Well, after giving the rope the once over in terms of its specifications, the Falcon clocks in with very respectable stats: Impact force is at 8.7kn, not the lowest on the market, but a nice solid level. Weight per meter is great at 55g/m, and for those interested, it holds 6 falls in the fall test, which is a solid number for a skinny line like the Falcon. Out of the coil it handles like a dream. The rope has amazing hand and folks who like a nice supple line are going to love this rope. Cost? Pretty respectable at $210 for the 60m version.
Pros: Light, supple, good stats. Environmentally friendly- Bluesign certified rope. Fairly durable for a skinny- its holding up well after 50-60 pitches.
Cons: It's black. At two bills, the cost may deter some. It's a skinny line, so if you want a workhorse, this probably isn’t it.
Overall Impression: I'm a fan of skinny ropes, and the handling and durability of this line make it a contender for one of the better skinny lines on the market. The fact that its environmentally friendly gives it a few extra points in my book.
