Ja, what Marshall said. These days a rope is a rope.

That being said...... I do like my Blue Water Dominator. It's a nice colour.





...... and is super light.... handles equally well on sport and trad... and has crunched and ground it's way up a good number of gritty routes with no noticeable sheath wear.

It are a very lovely rope.

I have a Bluewater now, not bad, but I liked the Edelrid I had before a bit more, I think it was less stiff than the Bluewater rope (maybe it's all in my head anyway).

All in all, no complaints, a nice rope, won't mind buying it the next time round.

I have a Blue water Dominator double dry,and its great, the first couple of time you use it it tends to twist up alot then after a couple of climbs loosens up.( a mate has a Beal Joker and did the same for the first few climbs ) I own a Edelrid and beal rope and find them all to be great ropes.

Not a Roca, I got a 9.7 in Spain, sure it keeps me from hitting the deck, but it wears easily, kinks like a bith and is very very stubborn in the grigri.

Guess I meant that its just like Marshall said, that a rope is a rope ect...
I do think that as far as quality goes, Mammut and Edelrid is a bit better...
But the Roca... I have to agree with AdK on that one.

I'm mostly top roping routes [18's] at the moment, so I just take an old Beal 11mm 'Ice Ranger' with me when we go to Strubens. I'll try and upgrade to a Bluewater as soon as I can actually climb something :D
