This would be favourable in a situation where there was a high chance of a rope being cut.
However new lighter-weight ropes with greater safety have virtually replaced this type of rope.

A rope is a group of yarns, plies, fibers or strands that are twisted or braided together into a larger and stronger form.
They are also popular among traditional climbers, and particularly in the UK, due to the ability to clip each rope into alternating pieces of protection; allowing the ropes to stay straighter and hence reduce rope drag. When using twin ropes, both ropes are clipped into the same piece of protection, treating the two as a single strand.
"Static" ropes, used for example in caving, rappelling, and rescue applications, are designed for minimal stretch; they are not designed to arrest free falls.
