Here's what other sites are saying:

The world at altitude demands high quality and low weight. That's where the Bluewater Ice Floss 7. 7mm Double Dry Twin Rope comes into play. Measuring a slim 7. 7mm and weighing in at only 38 grams per meter, this ice cord won't drag you back down to earth. A smooth, single-pick sheath resists catching on features as you hack your way up a frozen waterfall. Should you break loose along with a few stray chunks of ice you can rest assured knowing that an impact force rating of 9. 2kN is backing you up.

Head out to the extreme heights of the Himalayas or the glacial fields of Greenland - but only with the 7.7 mm Ice Floss Dry rope in tow. Extremely lightweight yet compact and sporting a smooth, single pick sheath that minimizes rope drag, it's a first choice among the world's great climbers.

- Mountain Gear

The lightweight, compact Bluewater Ice Floss 7.7mm x 60m Double Dry twin rope is designed to perform on extreme alpine and ice climbing ascents. Double Dry(TM) sheath and core treatment resists water absorption, so the rope remains light, strong and easy to handle in wet conditions. Small 7.7mm diameter keeps the weight down to only 38g per meter. Kernmantle design features a stretchy core protected by a durable outer sheath which combine for strength and good handling. Twin ropes are designed to be used as a matching pair; handling, elongation and strength differ from brand to brand and size to size. The Bluewater Ice Floss 7.7mm x 60m Double Dry Twin rope meets UIAA tests for falls, impact force and elongation.

- REI

Completely redesigned for 2008 with a 40 carrier braid sheath.
