Topic - Abseil rope - advice please

kp64zl - on 24 Feb 2014

I would like some advice about abseil rope please.

I am looking for a 100 metre rope for an upcoming trip to the isle of Pabbay.

I understand that the rock there is *very* abrasive, and I read reports of people trashing their ropes on day 1! I will get rope protectors & use them as much as possible.

Does anyone know whether there is any difference between different brands of abseil rope? Particularly in terms of abrasion resistance and general robustness.

Is there a difference between static and semi-static?

thanks.
