I got my hands on the tango last week and I can say that for a rope on that price I am amazed. I bought the blue version and it turned out to be a blueish-silver amazing color finish. When you first touch the rope it feels sturdy and tough. And it is. I got it strictly for multy-pitching on the very sharp and rough Varasova Sector in Greece. Now the rope there gets through a lot of zig-zaging and rubs on the rock a lot. After 2 days of hard climbing I have to say that this rope is a beast. The signs of worn where very little to none and although it is tough at the same time it is easy to handle an rolls like a charm through belay devices etc. Now as long as the building quality, as you can expect from a Petzl product it is very very good. Bottom line, a great rope for a very good price. I will get another one for sure.
