Rap Line II 6.5mm Static Rope
The difference between dynamic ropes and static ropes is that dynamic ropes can take the weight of climbers falling, whereas static ropes cannot. Although it's never a good idea to test this black-and-white rule, Edelrid tested the Rap Line II 6.5mm Static Rope to handle two falls like a twin rope would. That doesn't mean you should lead climb with a rope like this, but this rope can provide some added peace of mind when mistakes are made on the mountain, and you somehow shock the rope in such a way that most static lines can't deal with.

Best tag line
- I've put it through the wringer
By far the best tag line I have used. Super light, doesn't tangle, and still thick enough to inspire confidence. The ability to use it as a backup twin rope is a significant bonus as well. I used this technique when I had to relead a pitch when our lead line got stuck on rappel. Also works with a micro traxion ( although being smaller than recommended 8mm ) to haul a small backpack on multipitch routes.

Haven't used this yet, but purchased it for ski mountaineering objectives. I'll report back once I'm able to use it.
