I know all of us has rap a rope or belayed and had to deal with the twisting of the rope. By rapping a rope using a carabiner brake system will re leave the twist for a awhile. On a rope I bought a year ago still twist.
I would like to know how you fix this problem or can it be fixed?
When I coil the rope after climbing I work the twist out and I have hung a rope over night before and it has helped. But not with this rope.
I've had ropes that constantly twisted and kinked, and others that almost never did.. Some ropes are just cursed it seems. I read somewhere on Beals website that you have to uncoil a new rope in a special manner, otherwise it will give you trouble. Don't know much about that.
My current Beal rope never kinks, my previous kinked all the time (I gave it away) same brand, same model.
