The BlueWater 10.2 mm Eliminator features a weight per meter of only 65 grams, a low impact force and low static elongation. The Eliminator has become the choice for the serious climber who wants to shed some weight from traditional 10.5mm ropes.
You value the sturdiness and trustworthiness of the classic 10mm+ rope, but are looking to cut down on your pack weight without sacrificing quality. Look no further than the Bluewater Eliminator 10.2mm rope. Thanks to an eight-fall rating, you can stay serious about safety while departing with the unnecessary bulk of gym-sized ropes.
The 10.2 Eliminator Rope by Bluewater is one of the most well balanced ropes on the market. Right out of the bag the 10.2 has light weight, low impact force, durability and superb handling. Bluewater starts with the finest nylon fiber and processes it from start to finish with their proprietary Duration Thermal Stabilization (DTS). This is a precise technique that puts the nylon under a critical heat treatment that allows them to acheive a better balanced rope with incredible endurance to taking falls, running over sharp rock and just being used day in and out. Some of the 10.2 ropes are dry treated for ice climbing or mountaineering. The Double-Dry treatment is applied to each individual fiber in the sheath and core allowing just 11% water absorbtion (compared to the standard 20% - 30%) so your rope remains light and flexible under adverse conditions. Double-Dry also increases rope longevity and is an option on all of the dynamic cords.
Shed weight while still getting the strength of a 10.5 mm rope with BlueWater's 10.2 Eliminator Standard Bi-color Rope. At only 66 grams per meter, this rope lets you climb like a champ while its low static elongation and impact force are a little gentler on your body if you take a whipper.
