    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Mammut Tusk superDRY 9.8mm x 70m Dry Rope is rated 3.75 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best rope I've ever owned This is my first rope so I can only compare it to climbing friends ropes. It is not too heavy, I only had to switch shoulders carrying my rope bag once on a 1.5 mile uphill hike. I caught a friend on a whipper and the dynamic stretch was great, I was barely tugged forward. Overall, I am very happy with this rope, thanks REI.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Kinks badly I picked this up with my REI dividend in March, and after 36 pitches (I counted), it's become impossible to use due to kinks it develops during use. I've run it through a belay device from end to end to try to remedy the problem, but it's beyond help. We did 8-9 rappels on it, and all uses were leads (mostly multipitch outings) and bringing a follower up, until this past weekend, when we used it to toprope three routes. The rope has taken zero lead falls.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Rope My boyfriend and I just bought this rope a few weeks ago. We have been gym climbers for about two years now and wanted to branch out and expand our horizons. This being our first rope we don't have much to compare it too, but so far we are loving it. We've used it in the gym twice and outdoors once. Its stiff enough that clipping in is pretty easy, which is great for us clumsy beginners, but not so much that its hard to handle. It feeds well, and seems to be light. No trouble with fraying or unusual twisting. It hasn't been long enough to say whether it will be durable, but as of right now I would definitely recommend this rope.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice rope Used for canyinering. Kind of slippery, must be due to a dry treatment.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good rope I'm really pleased with this product after returning two New England Rope products for fraying/wearing within a few uses. This rope shows no sign of use in the 10 times I've taken it out, has a lighter feel, a gentler hand, and overall gives me real confidence. I've taken one fall on it and it did everything it was supposed to do. Absorbed the energy, caught me, and I barely felt it. Word to the wiser - when you are teaching a new lead belayer his/her trade... be sure to be specific. Nothing like getting dragged off the wall 4 ft above your protection because they have decided to lock off the rope in the middle of a vertical move. All in all, I'm extremely pleased with this rope. I will be looking for another Mammut when it wears out - which I expect to be a long time down the road.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rope, even better on sale Used this rope only twice so far, but no complaints at all. Feels good. Not heavy, even for a 70m rope. Comes with a center mark. Overall: a great rope.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rope I bought this rope on sale with a friend and we had our local gym cut it in half for indoor use. I realize it's a dry rope, but the price, length, and brand just couldn't be beat. I've used it quite a bit so far and it hasn't let me down. I'm sure it would be just as terrific outdoors. Strong, durable, diameter is perfect for my belay devices, lightweight...
