Supersafe–the name says it all.

Great rope for what it is - great feel and great piece of mind. Only item to note is it seems the sheath does not hold up as well as compared to some of the other ropes I have used - Sterling, other Mammut Etc.. A friend has one and his is just dandy - and I have been super careful with mine so I am not sure what is up with it. Nonetheless, a few fuzzies and I am still loving this rope.
Mammut Supersafe Climbing Rope - 10.2mm
This rope is awesome! Right out of the bag was great! Definitely reliable, light and ran smoothly. In comparison with other ropes this is by far one of my favorites. Definitely long enough for all our climbs too.

What's the dynamic elongation for this rope?
According to the sheet, 5.7% of length, I think is the answer you want.
If you're looking for modulus of elasticity, I suggest either contacting Mammut themselves, and/or referencing this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fall_factor
5.7% refers to static...dynamic is ~30% for most ropes
Cragging piece of mind
Yeah, yeah, yeah, skinny ropes are all the rage these days. Well, when I top out on sharp limestone here in the Canadian Rockies, I want a rope that I'm SURE, won't split open as I'm lowered. The Supersafe gives me the piece of mind to charge the next sport route day after day. I've taken numerous small falls on the cord, nothing big, but they've all felt quite dynamic. The rope has great "feel," plenty supple for that sketchy cross clip above the runout. My wife also climbs ice with this rope in the winter, and although the rope has been through two seasons of rock, it still feels reasonably dry after a day on ice. In my mind, it's a bit heavy for an alpine single cord, but, really, who gets to climb in the alpine after work? For me, this is the go-to workhorse rope.
Great All-Around Rope
I had been out of the climbing market for about 8 years, and I was looking to slowly get back into climbing through top-roping my local routes. I wanted a rope that could work well for these top-rope routes, but also provide the flexibility to be used when I got back into multi-pitch trad climbing. Basically, I was looking for a workhorse, everyday rope. After some research and recommendations, it appeared that a 60M, 10.2 rope was the way to go (although with a 70M, you can link some pitches, but it would have been overkill for top-rope routes). Looking at ropes offered in this size, the Mammut Supersafe came highly recommended. It is the only rope to pass the Sharp End Resistance test, which was nice. Otherwise, it feels and handles great. It has a nice coating, belays well and is relatively light for its size. It has nice center marks as well. Basically, if you are in the market for an all-around workhorse, use-anywhere-anytime rope, you can't go wrong with the Mammut Supersafe.
i'm debating between this rope and the...
i'm debating between this rope and the mammut infinity. i like a thinner rope for the way it handles and the lighter weight. on the other hand, myself and those i climb with are only intermediate climbers doing sport-only climbs. we often hang on the rope when trying to figure out a route, but we're pretty conservative and haven't had a big fall (yet). can anyone make a recommendation between the two ropes?
I'd say it's more a question of price. A thinner rope is definitely nice, but it'll wear out faster (even if you don't take big falls that often), so it'll need to be replaced more often. If you want to keep your current rope for a year or two, I'd advise getting a fatter one. I've been climbing on a 10.0 (sort of a compromise of your two choices) for years and love it. To be honest, $300 for a 10.2 is absurd. I'd recommend the Edelweiss Flashlight (EDL0008) as a much cheaper option, or if you don't mind a higher price, either size of the Metolius Monster (MET0192 and MET0193) would be excellent. In my opinion, the best option on the site right now is the Petzl Nomad (PTZ0256), which I've been using for a long time and it's still as supple and slippery as the day I bought it. It's a bit pricier still, but not $300, which is just highway robbery. If you want to compare, just plug any of the product codes I put in parentheses into the search box and you're good to go.
thanks - very helpful info!
it's thick through a belay device but no biggy, rather come down too slow that fall huh... other than that it's perfect and makes me feel comfortable, warm, and safe. kinda like a teddy bear.
Best Rope I've Ever Owned
Like the title says, this is the best climbing rope I have ever owned. I've gone through lots of brands and sizes and this one is hands down the best. I've had it for a few months now, used it on sport, trad, a wall, and lots of laps at the Creek, and it still handles great and is showing little signs of wear. The price is a little high, but I don't regret it at all. So far, this rope seems to be wearing a lot better than previous ropes. So, the extra money spent feels like money saved on having to replace a cheaper rope.
Sometimes the details like impact force, dynamic elongation, test falls, etc get a little overwhelming when you're trying to figure it all out. This rope seems to have the best combination of numbers due to some serious technology.
If you're shopping for your first rope, then maybe a cheaper, thicker rope would be the way to go. But if you are experienced and are familiar with the nuances of climbing ropes, then I would highly suggest giving this one a try. I'm willing to bet that you will be more than satisfied. There's a reason this rope is sold out right now.
If you don't want to spend the big buck then I would suggest looking for a sale on a rope from the Sterling Marathon Series or the Beal Edlinger II. Both are nice ropes at a fair price.
I just purchased this rope as the weather went south... So I haven't been out on it yet. I will say that I've uncoiled it.. and I didn't not find it to be "Super Thick" or "Heavy" in any way shape or form. I'm looking forward to getting out on it soon and testing it out.. I'll be back for an update.
Another quality Mammut Swiss Rope
This rope is not that fat! I have an Infinity 9.5 which feels considerably lighter, but the Supersafe isn't that bad, besides it is reassuring to look down and see the extra thickness if you are pushing, at, or above the double century poundage mark. I flaked it on my tarp as directed from the new fangled packaging, still kinked like a basket of worms, one rap and its A ok. Besides, it is a lot lighter than the old school 11mms I started with. Loose 2 pounds of beer fat and you won't notice fer cryin' out loud!!!!
Best Rope Ever Made !!!
Mammut SuperSafe is a work of art.
1st rope to pass the Sharp Edge test. Super DRY. 12 UIAA falls (no rope it's size beats that). From my experience, and every climber I know... it is the longest lasting of all the ropes we've used. Great hand/feel !!!
Not the cheapest rope on the market, but factoring in longevity, it probably will be in the end. What are your and your partners lives worth anyway?
I love this rope !!!
