Bluewater II Low-Stretch Review 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: nh_ranger, 2007-12-25

I got a great deal for 50m of this 11mm line over a year ago and I have never wished I got a different rope. I have heard things about poor knotability, but with its nice, loose sheath weave, this rope knots and holds very well.

With over a year of monthly or more use in northern NH, where almost everything is granite, the sheath is just noe beginning to fray. I would certainly recommend this line to anyone looking for a good quality low-stretch rope. The only negative about it is the lack of an NFPA G rating. If this is really a problem, the BW Safeline is the way to go.
