Verified Buyer Reviewed by Ken Climber from Layton, UT on Friday, November 17, 2017I've owned several Edelrid Boa's over the years due to the great handling and amazing price. These ropes feel good, they clip nicely, and they feel closer to a 9.6 than a 9.8 which is nice. Really the only complaint about them is that I'm not a huge fan of Edelrid's Bi-color method (Duotec). For their bi-color, what they do is run a thin piece of webbing in place of two of the sheath yarns. This piece of webbing is black for half of the rope, and green for the other half. My only issue with this is that this piece of webbing is not nearly as durable as the rest of the sheath yarns so it gets fuzzed up pretty quickly in comparison. This is not a safety concern or anything, but it just doesn't look as nice. Overall though, it's a great rope, and the fact that you can get any bi-color rope for this price is awesome.
Reviewed by Ken Climber from UT on Friday, November 3, 2017I'm a pretty big fan of the Edelrid Boa, it is a nice workhorse rope that handles really well and works for pretty much any type or rock climbing. The rope feels thin for a 9.8 and it feeds and clips really well. The only thing I don't really like is the duotec that Edelrid uses. Basically what they do for a bi-color is run a piece of thin webbing in the place of two of the rope sheath threads. This piece of webbing is black for half of the rope and green for the other half, so that is how you get the middle mark. The problem I have with this method is that the webbing seems to abrade much more quickly than the rest of the sheath, so even though functionally it isn't a problem, it just doesn't look as good, and I prefer other manufacturers methods of changing the weave pattern at the middle of the rope. This method does however, make for a very inexpensive bi-color rope, so that's good.
