For fuck's sake, it's just a goddamned top rope anchor. Dynamic or static rope doesn't matter one bit (assuming a well constructed anchor and appropriate redundancy).

That's funny, I don't see any of those pictures using a single 8mm dynamic rope to create a top-rope anchor. Can you find me one instance of a guide outfit that routinely uses skinny dynamic line for their toprope anchors?Of course it will work and of course it can be safe..there's no question about that. But to have a "knowledgeable" salesperson tell you this is what you need for building toprope anchors? That's a joke.
