Rope with comparable feel to Sterling Nano?

hi,

I'm using a Sterling nano 9.2mm dry rope for some applications. This rope has the nicest "in hand" feel of any climbing rope that I've ever used (soft but not mushy feeling, good sheath that is textured a bit - not slick).

Does anyone know if there are any other sterling ropes (or other brand/model) with a very similar feel in hand? I'm looking for something dunno 9.8mm - 11mm in diameter.

thanks

I've never used the Sterling Nano, but what you describes sounds like the Sterling Velocity (9.8) and Marathon (10.2?) ropes that I have used.

thanks I was hoping the Sterling kosmos might as well, but I'll take a look at those.

cheers
