Setting the standard for caving, rappelling, and rescue applications, BlueWater's 9.5 mm BW II+ Static low elongation rope still upholds the standards that made BlueWater famous. Abrasion resistant thanks to the 16 entwined sheath strands, the rope elongates in the event of impact or loading, thus providing added safety and predictable handling.

New for this year with polyester sheath, and nylon core!7/16 in. diameter static line is the standard rope for caving, rappelling, and rescue applications. Double twist cabled polyester sheath and nylon core strands make these ropes extremely abrasion resistant and have minimal stretch (not recommended for rock climbing). Tensile strength 7420 lbf. Weight: 17lbs 11oz.
BlueWater II Plus™ rope is a classic and economical choice for rappelling, rescue and caving. Especially useful in applications where dynamic bounce is unwanted: jumaring, rappelling and hauling. Kernmantle design matches a static nylon core (kern) with an abrasion-resistant braided polyester sheath (mantle) for durability. Double twist cabled core and sheath strands help combat twisting while hanging on the rope. Sheath design permits easier tying and untying of knots than some other static lines. Rope diameter is 7/16 inch (11.1mm), with a length of 150 feet (45.7 m). Closeout.
The BlueWater II +Plus, the rope that made BlueWater what it is today. The BlueWater II +Plus is the standard for use in caving, rappelling and rescue applications. Its design of double twist cabled sheath strands as well as double twist cabled core strands is truly the most unique and exacting rope design anywhere. These factors make it the best all around choice in a static/low elongation rope.
