“New England Safety Blue rope is by far the best rope I have used. It holds a Blake's hitch good but I do prefer to use a separate, smaller diameter rope for my Blake's - it holds a little better and I don't burn up the end of my climb line. I like the feel and workability of the New England Safety Blue and for the money it gives me the best quality at an affordable price. I would recommend it to any new or seasoned climber. ”
