    1 word to describe stiff

      I ought this for a prusick to stiff I am disappointed it to stiff to use for any thing cbad peice of cordage

      Too stiff

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

      Very displeased to find this will not work in a prusik, autoblock etc as a back up or for friction knot. It's pretty rope and I'm sure it will work for some things but I wish I had read these reviews prior to purchasing. I will need to purchase new chord.

      Stiff and durable

        I bought this as a precautionary for anchor building. I have yet to take it climbing but brought it with me on my most recent canyoneering trip and stoe it away on river trips. My initial impressions are that it is stiff durable and will hold. Its defiantly long enough for a multi-point anchor. Not sure of other uses because of how stiff it is.

        This is great for cordelette

          Is is too stiff for prusik, yes. However, I love it for cordelette. It is just a little stiffer than normal which I find handy for looping horns or boulders. It works just fine and is not to stiff for 3 point anchors. I have no complaints at all.

          Avoid

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          As with what others say, this cord is extremely stiff, not suitable for prusiks, and I won't reccommend this as a cordelette either. I highly recommend the red with blue Sterling Accessory Cord found here:

          Perfect for prusiks and cordelette. Get the good stuff.

          As Advertised

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          Its strong enough and great general purpose rope. Good length for anchors and the sheath is highly durable. You can work some of the stiffness out over time but I will second, or third, the others that said it is too stiff to use as a prusik. Even many common anchor knots are tough to untie. This is a characteristic common to bluewater ropes. Go with sterling for the extra cost.

          Cordelette: yes. Prusik: No

          • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

          Like others have said, it is too stiff to be useful as a prusik. But, it is perfectly fine for making a cordelette. I prefer the Sterling or PMI 6mm for my prusik.

          rope

            solid rope

            Good cordelette

              Its solid and trust worthy. Holds well on anchors but as the previous review stated, its a bit too stiff for most other uses. Over all I'm stoked, but will be using other cord for prusiks and slinging protection.

              Too stiff for Prusik

                I bought this cord originally from REI for use as prusik cord for crevasse rescue. However when I opened it I immediately could tell that it was too stiff for use as a prusik and after testing it on my 10.5 rope it just slipped through. So I instead put a double fisherman's knot in it and converted it to a cordelette.
