The Timber Evo 11 is double braided 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 too, providing just enough stretch to absorb some shock and keep things safe.
This light weight rope is just 88 g/m, which means a 50m rope comes in at just 9.7 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.
Timber Evo ropes are available in 11mm, 11.5mm and 12.5mm, guaranteeing that you can get the right rope for the right job.

This is only my second rope so I haven't used a lot of other ropes. The sheath is good and looks like it last a long time. The yellow/orange color looks good. Price was VERY good. I'll update later if anything changes, but it looks like it's going to be a really good rope.
I looked everywhere for a 300 ft. rope and no one had one in stock. Finally found this Tendon from these guys and it was on sale with free shipping. They shipped it to me fast, got it in 3 days. I heard Tendon makes good ropes for rock climbing, but didn't know they make tree climbing ropes too. This Timber Evo 11mm is sweet. Super smooth, super fast to climb, and doesn't bounce much at all. I like using thinner ropes since I do a lot of tall trees (120+ ft) makes it a lot lighter and easier to coil up at the end of the day. Only down side is that they seem to wear out faster. I've only used this one for 4 or 5 days but so far it seems to be wearing better then the other ropes I've used, and I've tried everything. Time will tell, but it seems like it will be pretty durable. It looks like these ropes are still on sale with free shipping so if you can get it on sale I say definitely go for it! Oh, I forgot, the free prusik is super nice too. I got a shorty 24" to use with my lanyard.
