The Timber Evo 12.5 was developed for the professional that prefers a more robust rope, without adding a lot of weight. This double braided rope has a robust 24 strand polyester sheath with excellent abrasion resistance. The high strength nylon core has just 3% stretch, enabling you to limit wasted energy, but still maintaining a good level of safety. The sheath is woven to make ascending with any method smooth and easy. You’ll also appreciate that the sheath has virtually no slippage in real world use. This rope was designed mainly as a climbing rope, but does well as a rigging line, providing just enough stretch to absorb some shock and keep things safe.
While this rope may be thicker than the other Timber Evo ropes, it’s not going to weigh you down. It weighs 104 g/m, which means a 50m rope comes in just under 11.5 lbs. Developed with the help of the Arbor and Forestry department at Mendel University (Brno, Czech Rep.) you can be sure that Tendon Timber Evo ropes will perform at the highest level.
Tendon Timber Evo ropes are available in 11mm, 11.5mm and 12.5mm, guaranteeing that you can get the right rope for the right job.

I wasn't sure when I bought the Tendon Timber 12.5, but I figured it was cheap so it was worth trying out. Long story short, I'm not buying any other rope from now on. The Tendon rope is as high quality, maybe higher quality than Yale Blue Moon or Sterling, and about 1/2 the price. So far it has been super durable and the handling is better than most other ropes. Sap still gets all over when doing pines though. I don't know why they're selling everything wholesale, but I don't really care care. Quality 24 strand climbing rope! Bonus, they put a free 10mm prusik in my box. It's even better than the rope.
