I agree with the theory here and it probably rings true for most situations in climbing...but having used both dynamic and static there is obviously a vast difference in how far you fall before you stop resulting lots more acceleration and subsequent force and sure this extra force is distributed over a longer period of time with the dynamic but it definitely seems to outweigh the force when using a static rope.

Additionally probably the biggest problem with toothed devices is that when they "fail' it is in fact the rope sheath that fails (first) and a static sheath is vastly better in that regard.
