Anybody Recognize This 8mm Line?

I have 70m (exactly) of 8mm climbing rope. I bought it a year ago and now forget if it's static, dynamic, if it has solid gold thread or platinum. If it's fall-proof guaranteed, if it will protect you from gumby and idiot newbie's.

Well... okay I just need to mainly know brand, and dynamic/static. Elongation would be a huge bonus.

Never been used. Once I know what it is I'll be posting it in the classifieds. Since I only have about 10 separate climbing ropes to 8mm that I know intimately. I might as well share the gear.

I confess I'm a gear whore (and love it) see my pictures for proof.

Thanks in advance!



{Edited}I changed the length from 70mm to 70m. On the suggestion of a rather sharp reader below.{/Edited}

I don't know what rope that is but sure looks longer than 70mm.

It looks remarkably similar to my Beal 60M 8mm static rap/tag line.

Thanks ALL!!! Totally appreciate it.

It's virgin cord. If you guys feel up to it would you check classifieds and let me know if my prices are to low, to high or I'm just way goosed up on drugs and need to delete myself?

Small note, although I am an otherwise disorganized person, I put tags on my rope bags. Yellow tags are static lines, blue dynamic. Then in felt tip on the tag, Brand, year bought, size. Then any small print like falls taken or ends chopped.

The bags are tossed onto the shelf so that the end with the tag is flopping out in plain view. It works great and ensures that I grab the right rope every time before heading out the door. It often astounds me both how much time flies and how often I otherwise forget little details that might be lethal in the wrong circumstance. Like last May, chopped my favorite skinny line, a Beal 9.4 dominator at Red Rocks. It's now @47 meters. Nice to have it slapped in your face as you are grabbing the bag and you want a 70M.
