    Sticky unusable coating

    Have purchased ropes in the past from Decathlon and they performed well out of the packet. This rope however has a very sticky residue and I found it sticking in my hands and even jammed up our belaying devices. The sticky residue was inside my grigri2 and I had to clean it out after one climbing session it was like chewing gum. Has anyone else had this issue?
