Topic - Rigging a top rope with only dynamic rope

dl_wraith - on 16 Sep 2013
Time for a really noob question. My apologies in advance for this one.

So, I'm in possession of two ropes. Both are dynamic. Will the additional stretch in these ropes make rigging top ropes with them unstable or unsafe in any way and if not, what measures will I have to take when setting up the top rope to take proper consideration of the extra stretch introduced into the system by the presence of more dynamic rope than you may normally use?

I sorta feel like I'm missing a point here so I'd rather ask and look stupid than shrug it off and not take proper consideration of a factor I may not yet fully understand. Be gentle, peeps.

(Sorry for the previous post for any who saw it. I've had belays on the mind of late)
