Why dynamic rope? Dynamic ropes are used for fall protection -- the "dynamic" aspect is stretching to lower the G-forces in catching a fall to reduce injury and the chances of anchor failure. Using an "old rope" for fall protection seems unwise. It is possible to buy dynamic rope "by the foot" -- if the goal is "fall protection" --isn't that worth a bit more than a six pack?
Appreciate the thought, but probably should have mentioned that I'm making a rug or something ... (I'm not)
A bit more context: modern ropes used in technical tree climbing are often super-static; so static that they can't be legally certified for PPE use in europe. I'm experimenting with a dynamic element in a different climbing system while instrumented with a load cell for comparison purposes. I expect it to fail (ie, not be useful), but am not putting my life on the line using it in a fall protection system.
So how much is fall protection worth, anyways? If you have a number you should suggest it to REI so they can jack up the price of all their carabiners that much.
