The Timber Evo 11.5 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 90 g/m, which means a 50m rope comes in under 10 lbs. Developed with the help of the Forestry department at Mendel University (Brno, Czech Rep.) you can be sure that Tendon Timber Evo ropes will perform at the highest level.

Add the 24" 8mm prussic to your cart to because it fits this rope like a latex glove with minimal sit back. My rope wrench and distle hitch has milked about 6 feet of sheath off my rope. This gives me confidence because it's the same amount that milks off of comparable ropes from Sampson. Kinda tells you theres proven quality in the construction.
I've been using the Tendon Timber Evo 11.5 for about a week. I got it with a spliced eye because it just makes my setup so much cleaner. I let one of my co-workers use if if he promised to buy a new one if he cut this one. He's been climbing a little longer than me and said it could be the best rope he's used. The sheath doesn't milk even with the spliced eye. The zigzag runs nice and smooth on it and so far no slipping. When this one wears out (or gets cut) I will buy another one. Oh, the orange color is awesome, really easy to see so I can keep my chainsaw and hand saws away from it.
I decided to try this rope since it was on sale. I have only been using Blue Moon 11.7 and Poison Ivy 11.7 for years. I've been climbing on this rope for about 2 weeks now. This Tendon Timber Evo 11.5 is every bit as good as Blue Moon and Poison Ivy and it seems more durable. I climb SRT and DRT depending on the tree. I also use prusiks and rope runner pro and this rope works great with everything. I didn't get the spliced eye this time, but I think I will on the next rope. I will definitely buy Tendon ropes again.
