    Details

    Climbing. It's only as safe as you make it.

    Constructed from solid-weave, high-strength nylon webbing, the Blue Water Anchor Sling has a sewn-in loop at each end, so building your anchor is easier than listening to your buddy whine about his girlfriend who doesn't climb. Nylon absorbs shock well if someone on the rope biffs it, and having access to one of these slings can be handy when you don't feel like having to MacGyver your top-rope safety on the spot.

    Too bulky and stiff

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This looked good on paper but once it arrived I knew I'd never use it. The stiching takes up most of the sling making it stiff and hard to manipulate. Get the Metolius Rabbit Runner or Equalizer instead.

    IMHO you are comparing apples to oranges. Slings and runners come in all types and sizes for different reasons. You may prefer dyneema slings when you want to climb light, yet choose the dynamic properties of a bulkier nylon sling to provide more protection when clipping into an old bolt.

    These Blue Water runners are called "Anchor Slings" for good reason. These are well made, heavy duty slings used to make bombproof anchors. They are not meant to be used during a climb to extend the short sling of a piece of protection. They work well as anchors at the base of a climb, and excel as anchors for top roping (assuming that you are using a tree or other appropriate anchor). And for rescue, you want their extra strength and durability. Blue Water quality is readily apparent in their construction. Similar heavy duty/anchor slings are made by most climbing companies.

    The two star rating above is unfair and misleading. These "anchor" slings should be judged and rated for how well they achieve the intended purpose that they were designed to serve.

    I give them high ratings for how they are made and perform.
