PMI Max-Wear Sport 11mm

rated 5.0 of 5 stars

This is a tough rope. One of the longest lasting ropes on the market. Doesn't work well with certain devices like ATC's or Petzl Stop. Very resistant to abrasion, good for jugging.


  • Stiff, ascenders slide well
  • Abrasion resistant, less sheath fuzzing
  • Static


  • Sheath not as smooth/quiet as others
  • Stiff, doesn't pack down well in bag
  • Stiff, device compatibility and device wear

I have used these ropes for the past 9 years for cave exploration. Good quality and last longer than other ropes. It takes more abrasion and doesn't burn as easily during fast rappels. A good buy if you need a tough rope.

Source: I have acquired many of these, some new, some old. My friends use them as well.
