iFlipWhile the Marathon Pro is a classic rope from a great manufacturer, I would recommend something with a smaller diameter. In general any rope 10mm or above is considered "fat." Unless you're going to be doing a lot of toproping, aim for something 9.8 or smaller. You're right to buy 70m though.
For quickdraws, Petzl Spirits are widely accepted as the finest. I personally use BD Oz quickdraws. Try to avoid anything with a huge notch for the gate as they will get annoying fast. Do you get legit prodeal or just through Outdoor Pro Link or Promotive?
I'm not sure how the pro deal works yet, I emailed my boss to figure it out but he hasn't gotten back to me yet.
But from what my coworkers told me I should be getting 20-60% off of gear through whatever we use.
