The Equinox has been redesigned to be lighter and more versatile. Whether for sport climbing or longer multi-pitch routes, the Equinox is the perfect rope for its excellent knotability and ease of clipping. All of New England Ropes have Endura dry treated cores. Select styles have a Double Dry (2x) treatment where the cover is coated with Endura Dry Treatment as well as the core for the ultimate in dry protection. These models carry the "2X Dry" or "Doulbe Dry" designation.
Endura Dry is a multi-stage application process. For STD-Dry ropes, the coating is applied to the individual core yarns prior to the braiding process. The cores are then surrounded by an additional protective cover, locking in the water-blocking power of the coating. 2X Dry ropes are treated a second time using the same process. New England Ropes cures the finished product, using an environmentally controlled process that creates a chemical bond between the coating and the finished climbing rope. Endura Dry lubricates the individual core fibers, improving fiber-to-fiber abrasion that can occur beneath the surface.

I haven't had the chance to climb with the rope yet, so this review is purely based on price and my initial inspection of the product.\nThe price was excellent. I purchased the rope at 60% off thanks to the Friends and Family sale, and thanks to a $50 credit, my final price on the ropen came to a whopping... wait for it... $8.00. Yep. Eight bucks. Needless to say, I couldn't be happier.\nUpon inspection, the rope appears clean, free of loose threads, stains, or fraying. No mushy spots either. I'm excited to get it out on some 5.10 lead climbing. Altogether, it's probably the best bargain I've ever found.
This is my first climbing rope. The only downside about this rope is it is fairly bulky, but for the price and the type of climbing I plan on doing is exactly what I need.
