This is the best feeling rope I've used. However, I also think it's dangerous. I have seen 4 of these easily open to the core on brand new ropes. It's my opinion that the nice weave that gives it that silky feeling is also cause for an unzippering effect of the sheath. The first time it happened I thought it was a freak accident. But when I saw three more, I started to question the design.

I have owned this rope for a while now. The features that I like the most are its light weight for easier clipping and its fantastic hand. Its sheath has a very unique weave that makes it run through the hands *very* smoothly. However, I also found it to be a dirt magnet, even with the dry treatment. I have owned two Maxim ropes and I found they both got dirty far earlier than my friend's Bluewater. They both seemed to wear faster as well. I also found it a frustrating rope to belay with as it tangled and kinked easily. Overall, though I found it to be a fine rope, with more innovative and interesting features than my friends Bluewater, I think my next rope might be a Bluewater. When the Glider worked, it worked great. When it kinked or touched dirt, it became a pain in the ass.
