The New England Ropes Maxim Glider is an innovative and well made climbing rope. At 10.2mm, 66 g/m and with a beefy strength of holding up to 9 UIAA falls, this rope is made for work. The 9.9mm version is a bit lighter at 63g/m and holds up to 7 UIAA falls. This model incorporates a unique 1 over 1 sheath weave rather than the common 2 over 2, which makes the rope handle smoother and last longer. The closest imitation of the way this rope handles is the Teflon coating on the Mammut Infinity, which also prolongs the life of the rope and allows it to feed well. If you like the quality of the Glider, but it is too expensive for you, try out the Maxim Pinnacle which uses the same sheath weave technology.
