Rating: rated 3.5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $18.95

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).

 

Yes, I do recommend and would buy again from REI.

BlueWater's Titan cord is manufactured from Dyneema high performance fiber and nylon. This combination of high strength, low stretch and light weight fibers provides superior charecteristics over other combinations. Dyneema does not lose significant strength with repetitive flexing and offers a huge increase in abrasion and cut resistance over other materials. Bluewater Titan cord can be cut and sealed with a hot knife. We recommend a triple fisherman's knot for tying 5.5 Titan into loops.
