Glider Dry 60M
Review by: tyler_o_melvin, 2007-01-31
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.
