Thin ropes that dont stretch ridiculous amounts?

I've always favored thin ropes--I climb just about everything on 9.4mm or less. One thing I dont love is the vast majority of them stretch like wet noodles. Usually upwards of 8%+ static and 36%+ dynamic. Does anyone make a thin single rope, 9.4mm or less, that doesn't actually stretch boat loads? Say 7% or less static elongation? I'm only aware of two: The Bluewater Icon 9.1mm and the Maxim Airglider 9.1mm, and I already own the Icon.
