Phillip Robertswrote a review of Maxim Airliner 2X Dry Climbing Rope - 9.1mm on March 15, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I did a lot of research before pulling the trigger and purchasing the Maxim Airliner. It arrived and I was very pleased. I took it out climbing a few times and noticed in small sections that it would freeze up. Rope would be stiff. Then one day, on a challenging climb in cold dry conditions the rope was frozen stiff in sections of a foot or so. I have to force the rope through the ATC. The next day I contacted maxim and explained the situation to them. They said that should not happen but the desired to test my rope to see if the Dry Treatment have not been applied. I sent the rope to them and they tested it. Said it looked good but were kind enough to send me a new rope.
I went out with the new rope on a snowy day and the rope froze up stiff in 2 to 3 foot sections at a time. Just not acceptable. Other than the rope freezing the feel of the rope is fabulous. It is just too dangerous to use. I will also throw out there that I am living in New England so more moisture in the air than out West?
