Here's what others have to say...

As Advertised

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Its strong enough and great general purpose rope. Good length for anchors and the sheath is highly durable. You can work some of the stiffness out over time but I will second, or third, the others that said it is too stiff to use as a prusik. Even many common anchor knots are tough to untie. This is a characteristic common to bluewater ropes. Go with sterling for the extra cost.

Cordelette: yes. Prusik: No

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

Like others have said, it is too stiff to be useful as a prusik. But, it is perfectly fine for making a cordelette. I prefer the Sterling or PMI 6mm for my prusik.

Good cordelette

Its solid and trust worthy. Holds well on anchors but as the previous review stated, its a bit too stiff for most other uses. Over all I'm stoked, but will be using other cord for prusiks and slinging protection.

Too stiff for Prusik

I bought this cord originally from REI for use as prusik cord for crevasse rescue. However when I opened it I immediately could tell that it was too stiff for use as a prusik and after testing it on my 10.5 rope it just slipped through. So I instead put a double fisherman's knot in it and converted it to a cordelette.
