7.8mm Fusion Photon 50m
The Fusion Photon is Sterling’s first half rope that is also certified to twin. It was manufactured to have a perfect balance of diameter to weight.
Designed to round out the Fusion series as a performance half rope, the Photon is small and light, making rope drag less of a concern over long or windy pitches.

These Fusion Photons are easy to pull when belaying with the Petzl Reverso and CAMP’s Gi-Gi. These lines handle well for such small diameters. The Photons seem a little wiry compared to supple fatter ropes. The wiry feel seems to keep the lines from tying themselves into bites. The colors of our ropes, yellow and purple, were great in contrast and beautifully bright.
