I believe that training on old ropes is not like training on new ropes. New Ropes (Tournament ropes) stretch and are springy.
In the old days - it was just not safe to ski with a 3 month old rope. Now I ski with the same rope for almost a year. Anyone have insight on how long new ropes really last. IfÂ you do not see fray...Â whenÂ do change ropes?
