I tried many ropes with the GFM unit and found Fly to be the best Rope for my needs. Now with just a couple climbs into the RE version on a fresh hank of Fly - I love it just the same, it’s good and buttery.Question that perhaps @JMerritt can answer. The Akimbo is designed for ropes 11.5-13mm according to the device, but the 11.1mm Fly is on the list of "approved" ropes. Any particular reason for this or to think another 11mm line won't work as well? I ask because I'm looking to get a new rope and would need something from the plus-sized list, but still prefer the smaller diameters.
EDIT: Also, anyone flown the Akimbo on Fly and have any opinions on it.

She got further than I did.Good to know that at least one person is reading the manual
both drop and static. mostly drops as i understand it. the breaking strength of the akimbo is somewhat irrelevant to the working load as the akimbo slips long before it nears breaking.She got further than I did.
Just curious if you have any insight on the rope testing methods RE came up with for the approved list. Wondering what the criteria, method, and safety factor is.
Without walking out to the frozen hell that is outside looking at my Akimbo on the table it looks like it will take a large maybe, and definitely a deltaWould someone mind checking if the RE version tending point will accept a small or medium Maillon Rapide Delta quick link? Thanks
Thanks, I was just curious if it would fit. Haven't got mine yet, after seeing Jamie's video on the LOTS was thinking of trying a delta or small pear maillon along with this https://www.treestuff.com/store/catalog.asp?category_id=223&item=1956.Without walking out to the frozen hell that is outside looking at my Akimbo on the table it looks like it will take a large maybe, and definitely a delta
