A standard for police and military applications, the low-visibility BlueWater Assaultline static rope is designed for tactical and rescue work. Especially useful in applications where dynamic bounce is unwanted, such as jumaring, rappelling and hauling. Kernmantle design matches a static nylon core kern with an abrasion-resistant braided polyester sheath mantle for durability. Each of the 16 sheath strands is essentially a small 3-strand rope, which work together to provide excellent abrasion- and cut-resistance under loads. Each core strand is individually twisted into a small 3-strand rope before the sheath is braided over this design elongates slightly in the event of accidental shock loading. Sheath design permits easier tying and untying of knots than some other static lines. Rope diameter is 7/16 in. 11.3mm, with a length of 120 ft. 36.58m.
