I recently purchased a 70m 9.8mm Edelrid rope. When it was packaged it had 3 tight plastic bands holding it in a coil. When I cut the bands off I noticed that they left small indentations on the rope where the bands were. It has been about 4 days and the indentations seem maybe slightly smaller, but mostly unchanged. Has anyone else experienced this before? Should I be worried about the integrity of the core?

Not at all. This is normal and those indentations will go away with normal use. I have about 5 Edelrid ropes (used to work for them) and they all had that for the first little while and now they're all fine.

Unfortunately, those bumps are dangerous. The only way to get rid of them is to take a lead fall on trad gear after you have placed a cam in passive position and factor 2.5 on nylon while being belayed with a gri gri 4.
