Question about my 12.5 Sterling HTP

My rope feels stiff for most of its length but in some sections it feels really soft. Is that normal or is there something wrong?
I don't know if the picture helps but I was trying to show that with about the same pressure one closes more than the other.

It looks like a new or nearly new rope to me, it may be that the cover has not been milked fully, which leaves portions of the cover right and other places loose. You might try milking the full length of the rope a few times, to see if that solves the problem.

Thanks I think that did it. It was 135 feet so that was fun, but it feels better.
