The "select option" box shows which option are in stock. At the time I am writing this they have all lengths in stock and therefore all are represented in the drop down. That changes from day to day. I believe this is true of all backcountry.com listing.

Hope that helps.

Backcountry wrote the specs correctly.
The breaking weight for static loads is 4800 lbs. Meaning you can hang anything less than that weight from this rope.
The 7.4kN rating refers to impact. Not meaning that this will cushion a fall to only be 7.4kN (it has no stretch and will not cushion a fall at all) but rather that 7.4kN of force will break the cord. That can be generated very easily by a body in motion. A fall factor 1 will generate over this much force. So make sure there is not slack is the system.

Lots of great info here: http://dmmclimbing.com/knowledge/how-to-break-nylon-dyneema-slings/

Sorry to repeat what I said on another question but :
It's important to note that the breaking strength for static weight is 4800lbs but this does not directly translate to a dynamic force. Since this uses non stretching material for its core a fall would only have to generate 7.2kN to break this stuff.

It's super safe as an anchor or for other static purposes when used with a dynamic rope but should not be used as a rope or personal anchor point or anywhere else where slack may be introduced into the cord.

As for this exact question, this SHOULD be okay but you have to be very careful when modifying gear like this. Creating burns in the hex could easily shred the cord.
