Certifications and specs are important, but what makes Maxim a premier climbing rope is durability and excellent hand. The folks at New England Rope take extra care to ensure that every Maxim rope is easy to knot, easy to clip and durable. Maxim dynamic ropes are manufactured with 48 sheath yarns, stabilized yarns, and high twist levels. This ensures maximum abrasion resistance, minimum shrinkage, and a round tight sheath.

UIAA approved, Maxim dynamic ropes are extremely flexible and torque-balanced to produce a construction that is free-running, knots well and handles easily in all situations while providing the fall protection and abrasion resistance required in climbing applications.

Voted 5/5

I found this rope on the internet for $81.00! This is one of the best gear purchases (for the money) I've ever made.

I highly recommend Maxim ropes. This rope is smooth, soft, and light. It feeds well into my belay device and the knots stay in place. This rope has replaced my primary lead rope.
