|Bluewater Canyon Pro Dual Sheath Rope - 8mm||$362.95|
When I first picked this up I was shocked at how light it was. Maybe I've just been using older ropes for too long and it's yesterdays news that they make ropes this light but I'm impressed.
I would recommend this rope if you've got experience canyoneering. If not, go with a fatter rope. Because of the smaller diameter on this bad boy, you go down the rappels much faster. Which is great when you're trying to break personal records but not so great when you're just learning how to rappel.
The Blue Water Canyon Pro Rope - 8mm is a great canyoneering rope. The lite weight is great when approaches & canyons are multiple miles all day affairs. 8mm is fast on rappel so experts and thin people only. You also want to change the rub point on sharp edges constantly. 9mm is better for novices/intermediates, people who have more gravity mass, or if none of the above made any sense.
The orange color shows up well in pictures.
This rope is an awesome color. It is super lightweight and compact. It has held ok to the abuse of Southern Utah canyons. I am a little concerned by some sheath slippage I am starting to see already, and also how quickly the abrasions are starting to take their toll.
It is beautiful stuff. If you doubt it as your mainline and money is not a big drive, use it as a short rope or pull cord. After a few hikes, you might want to ride 8mm all the time.
