Route 44 technology developed exclusively by Singing Rock. This unique sheath-braiding technology proves there is a better way to make a rope. Route 44 is the only rope in the world to use this patented technique making the rope more perfectly round and giving the sheath a perfect blend of thickness, durability and handling characteristics. Recommended use: rescue operations, work positioning, military and police use, speleo, fixed rope for expeditions and big wall.

Before getting this rope I was unfamiliar with Czech Republic company Singing Rock, and I was a bit doubtful the rope would meet my outdoor needs (I have used other static ropes before in climbing gyms and they have been a bit stiff and, well, static), but as the company says, the R44 is "compact, soft, light, durable" (and I'd also say strong! - 33.3 kN min. breaking strength with 38% of the mass being in the outer sheath, making it super resistant to abrasion).
Now, I just wish I had started using a static line for route development years ago! In the past couple, (probably as I get older, heavier and weaker), I have been tearing up my dynamic work horse ropes pretty quickly. This static line handles almost exactly like my dynamic ropes, and is perfect for use with a Rock Exotica Soloist Solo Belay Device since it doesn't stretch much...
Bought this for a trip to Moab over Labor Day. Rope worked great, I purchased 11-mm 300' Black. I bought the 11-mm because it was not much more than the 10.5-mm I have now used this rope for 7 Rappels ranging from 100'-170', with virtually no viable wear on the rope.
Pro's: Even though it got flung in mud & sand it dried quickly over night and stayed fairly clean. Didn't have any issues tying any bites or knots. Minimal stretch, even on a 170' rap I didn't notice any bounce or stretch. Thick and durable (good mental duck-tape for some of the longer raps)
Con's: Buddy said he had a hard time feeding the 11-mm through his ATC. I had no issues, but I tend to like a thicker rope. If your worried about this just get the 10.5-mm. The 300' length hard to wrap up & was heavy to carry around all day, but not sure your can find a lighter rope in the size with the same specs.
Overall I have no complaints with this rope, it worked...
This rope looks like it will work great for my planned uses: rappelling, vertical haul line, single rope bridge...excited to try it out. My only wish is that I could have afforded a longer section of it. You see 150" in the pics.
