I am looking to buy a new rope for rappelling and am looking at either the Atwood arm Decent rope or Blue Water Assualt line. The Atwood rope has a higher tensile streength. Has anyone used these ropes and which one would you recommend?

If you are just using it for rappelling and there aren't any crazy distances involved then any 10-11mm static rope will be perfect. Protect sharp edges etc. to lengthen your rope's life.
