Bluewater 5.5mm Titan Dyneema Accessory Cord - Package of 20 ft. Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

Impressive Strength, Super Stiff

I've been using the regular 6mm+ nylon accessory cord for sometime now, and recently decided to check out the Titan cord. The specs on this cord are absolutely amazing, but do come at a cost. This cord is SUPER stiff. It isn't terrible for knots; actually easier to tie and untie (especially after being under load), but it loves to hold onto twists.

Pros:
Light
Super strong
Easy to untie

Cons:
Very stiff
Twists easily
Only comes in a 20' pack (30' would be perfect for most anchor uses, I think)

In summary, if you're looking specifically for Dyneema cord, or you have something that absolutely needs the added strength, this is a great buy. For a regular anchor you may just consider normal 6mm+ nylon. It's cheaper, a bit more forgiving, and there are studies available online (I can't conclude on the veracity of them) that state that nylon is better as it is considerably more durable.

Great for cordelettes

This is great for making a cordelette. It's stronger than 8mm accessory cord, but only 5.5mm. Great length - just tie your triple fisherman's and you're good to go.

Other thoughts:

I originally thought the stiffness would be a disadvantage, but the stiffness actually makes it easier to untie the anchor.

This wouldn't be good for a prusik because it's too stiff.

Excellent

Overall, found this to be lightweight and easily packable. I've just started investing in my own gear and bought this on recommendation from my climbing partner. so far, no complaints.

When things are on the line

I bought this rope as an emergency rope. Extremely strong for its' size being made from Dyneema with a nylon cover/sheath. I bought a color of solid black.

Plus's,
- high strength, 3100Lbs break
- low stretch and low settle.
- light weight.
- very durable core.
- Highly cut resistant.

50/50's
- stiff

Con's,
- wish it was sold as a 50ft package rather than the 20ft package.
- cover is nylon so it can chafe (easier than the core).

I bought a second and have woven one into a lifting sling (strength theoretically = 12400lbs).
