Sterling 1/2" x 52' NFPA SuperStatic Short Rope - BLACK
What is a 'short' rope? Simple. These ropes are lengths of first quality climbing rope left over at the end of a production run. Usually under 150' long, they're too short for a "standard" sized rope, but too long to recycle. The manufacturers sell them to us at a substantial discount and we pass the savings on to you! These ropes are perfect for edge tender lines, anchors, rigging or just use them for practicing system construction or knot tying.
A multipurpose rescue/rappel rope, the 1/2" is the top choice for military operations, mountain rescue and rope access for two-person loads. 100% nylon low stretch static rope with uniform sheath coverage for durability and gear compatibility.
Typical static ropes are made on 16 - or 32 - carrier machines with less twist in the cover yarns. These ropes have a much coarser, bumpier hand, which exposes much of the yarn to abrasion causing early rope retirement. Sterling's unique sheath produces a rope with a more supple hand, making it easier to deploy during rescue operations.
The smoother sheath finish reduces vibration allowing for more control during lowering and extrication procedures. And, with the 48-carrier sheath, less yarn is exposed to abrasion, giving you a longer lasting rope. In addition, with less bulk in the sheath, they can add more yarns to the core giving you a stronger rope.
The other most significant difference between Sterling's SuperStatic and all others is DryCore. Rescue technicians never know where and under what conditions (wind, rain, snow) the next rescue will occur, but with DryCore, their ropes will stay dry, supple and strong.
