RFID and NCF
This technology can be helpful if you are a gym or professional business where you'd like to track the usage and age of your ropes.
RFID is how items are uniquely identified using radio waves (Radio Frequency Identification). It's for 1-way communication from 10cm to 100m away depending on the frequency. Example: Airport Baggage.
NFC is a subset of RFID that is restrained to close proximity communication typically less than 10cm (Near Field Communication). NFC chips can operate a 2-way signal to exchange information. Example: Apple Pay.

The sexiest of all ropes, Euros are skinny (less than 9.8mm) and brightly colored (read: pink). These ropes have an amazing strength-to-weight ratio, but tend to be less durable and are not suited for top rope climbing. They are designed for the weight-conscious climber ascending alpine and long, multi-pitch routes, and doing hard redpoint/onsight climbing. I believe the best rope in this category is the Sterling Nano 9.2mm. Sterling has earned a firm reputation for making extremely durable ropes, and even a rope this skinny can withstand some significant abuse. My climbing partner has one that has put in a full season in Zion and is still in great shape. It is rated for use as single rope, meaning it is strong enough to protect huge lead falls on its own, but can also be used in systems using two ropes (ie. half, twin, or double rope systems). This is more common in ice climbing, alpine, and some sketchy or meandering traditional climbs. For the sake of brevity, I will say I rarely use two ropes in this way, because it is messy, and not necessary for most climbing in Zion. Skinny ropes are expensive and made for specific types of climbing. Those looking for a rope they can take on any given climbing day probably want a rope with a larger diameter between 9.8 and 10.2mm, which brings us to…
Despite the thin diameter of the Nano, our testers enjoyed its stiffness-to-flexibility ratio. “Some ropes already feel coreshot when they’re brand new,” said a diehard skinny-rope user. But not so with the Nano. This rope is only available with a dry treatment and, like all ca. 9mm ropes, it has fairly high dynamic elongation (32.5 percent), meaning you could still drop a long way after the
belay comes tight. Do not toprope with this cord—it is best saved for redpoint or onsight attempts on steep terrain.
