Looking for a new rope.
(possibly two exact same ropes for a nice long repel/multi-pitch)

Please post suggestions/The best rope you've had

Must be:
Single rope(as a primary lead rope)
11mm < OD > 9.4mm
Dynamic
Length >= 60m(70m preferred)

A green and orange one. It was long, but not too long, had a diameter, and it was pretty.

Lanex Viper. 9.7 x 60. But that was years ago.

What does best mean here? Greatest longevity? Easiest to handle and least likely to kink or tangle? Best price? Nicest color?

I own 3 ropes, and my fav of the 3 is the Sterling Biathalon 10.1. It handles nice, the dry coating is holding up well, and it hasn't gotten stiff and fuzzy like the two Mammuts.

The best as in which one you liked the best overall. Just your plain and simple favorite.

Mike I found you some info about Lanex that might be interesting. First off they changed their name to Tendon and started a new marketing strategy.The good news is they still sell what seem to be the same ropes jut under a different name.
The ropes they now sell in their "master" line look to be of amazing quality.

Tendon Master 9.7
rope diameter (mm): 9.7
weight (g/m): 61
number of UIAA falls: 9-10
max. impact force (kN) : 7.6
sheath slippage (mm) : 0
static elongation (%): 7.6
dynamic elongation (%) : 35

9-10 UIAA falls for a 9.7. That's the number you usually see from good 10.5's.

The Ambition 10.2 looks to be a good option as well.

looks like no one even sells them in the USA but i found a price of 127.99 euro's from a UK shop(about 150 euros for 70m).

This equates to about $170 for 60m and 198 for 70m +shipping(not too bad).

My two favorites are outside of your range. Both are Mammut but one is the 8.9mm Serenity and the other is a 9.2mm Revelation (both arew singles). Handled nice,and I had a pair of pants that matched really nicely with the colors, (Dude, thats important).

Of course it is....since threads like this are undeniably pointless.
