Bluewater II Low-Stretch Review
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.

For my needs, this rope is "it". Everyone I work with uses this rope, it's an accepted standard in entertainment rigging. Very tough sheath, puts up with a lot of abuse before it starts to go fuzzy.
One downside; it's not as flexible (hence knotable) as other static ropes such as those from Edelweiss but probably makes up for it in abrasion resistance.
Comes in black as "Assault Line". The ideal rope for that grappling hook you've been dying to use!
