6.0 Static Rope

The Black Diamond 6.0 Static Rope is a versatile tagline that you can use as an escape cord or for drilling new climbs. It's light and easy to pack so you can haul it up long multi-pitches with double-rope rappels. Black Diamond designed it with a 65m length to pair well with 60m dynamic ropes, since its Kernmantel construction keeps stretch to a minimum like a static rope should.

Very stiff cord. Haven’t got

Very stiff cord. Haven’t got to use it yet but I anticipate it will loosen up.

6mm Static Tag Line

The length 65m is perfect, the sheath is tight and burly. This line serves multiple purposes. It is my emergency Lift Evac line when I am ski Patrolling, it is a tad longer than my 60m climbing rope, handy for 100+ foot routes and getting off multi pitch routes that have rap stations set up for 2 60m ropes. I use it for single-patient loads (pt is in a sked or other litter) where a quick belay on steep terrain ads a safety factor. I like the black color!

Very Stiff

This is very stiff cord. Stiffer than powercord. About as stiff or even more stiff than Sterling Xtec. It doesn't take knots especially easily because of the stiffness. Also it's not clear what this is made of, which is unsettling. I don't know why BD doesn't name the materials used. If you are looking for stiff cord with what seems to be a nylon sheath, and are looking for something lightweight but not especially compressible because of the stiffness, then this cord seems just fine. It's a 5/5 if you want very stiff thin cord for a good price.

I was so glad you

I was so glad you had this short cord . I got on my climbing wall to check it out. Its so stiff and thin. I have a hard time gripping this its so thin. I sent the full length cord back and ordered the 9 m . thanks

Far too stiff

Hey BD, Unfortunately I instantly regretted my purchase of the 65m 6.0mm tag line. The cord is the stiffest static rope I have ever handled. It is painful to work with and will be even more frustrating to pack for climbing trips. I would really recommend making it a more supple piece of rope. I would not recommend it to anyone.

Excellent tag line for a multitude of purposes. Good for hauling gear on multi-pitch ascents.

Comically stiff

Seems like it would be useful in many situations, but it's difficult to use because it's ridiculously stiff. Like coil it, hold it up, and the coils stick straight out levels of stiff. Would not recommend at all.

Too wirey

Used as pull cord many times. Takes forever to wrap and unwrap cause of how wirey it is. Washed and soaked several times with to no avail.

5 star PAIN IN THE AS*. Way too stiff!!!

I don't like this rope. I made the mistake of buying it before touching it. I purchased it through a pro deal so there is no returning it. This rope is way way too stiff. Imposable to neatly nest. Makes a pile about 5' round which entwines itself into a knot real easy. It's like using a soft wire. It is very good while rappeling but rope management after rappel eats up a lot of time. If it doesn't soften soon ( I doubt it will) I will have to replace it $$$
