Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for autoblocks on rappel Fairly cheap at .30 a foot. I had a 7mm Bluewater accessory cord but I found it to be way to un-malleable for auto-blocking knots like a prusik, Klemheist, or Bachmann. I tried this on my 10.2mm Beal rope and the rope just bites down so easily even after being continuously unloaded and loaded. I will be using more of this PMI 5mm for some Texas Prussiking for Crevasse Rescue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flexible and light This is very flexible, unlike many other spectra cords of similar size. Knots are easy to tie and hold very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable Save yourself $15.00 and buy from the spool! I use this for a variety of friction knots. Simple and easy

How much stretch is there for hanging hammocks?

Asked by: Neeman
The longer the cord, the more stretch it will have. PMI recommends using the 6mm or 7mm cord for hanging a hammock.
