Topic - Replacing my 70m sport rope - Sterling nano question

kipper12 - on 22 Jul 2013
I am after some advice on rope replacement.

My 70m sport rope is approaching retirement age, and I am looking at a suitable replacement. I found a recent revoew of some skinny 70 m ropes and the Sterling nano came out well. SO I thought this may be a sensible option.

So far so good, but I looked on a well known yellow bendy fruit website today (cant mention by name apparently) and there was a warning that the nano should not be used for top roping. Now I dont do this a lot but I like to think the rope I bought could be used for top roping too.

Anyone have any thjoughts as to why it shouldnt be used to top rope on, is this the same with all very skinny ropes.
