Trevor Long wrote a review of Beal Ice Line 8.1mm Rope on May 6, 2011
I've got this double rope. Really an excellent choice for trad and ice climbing for extra security. Climbing with double rope gives you quite a bit more options and Beal makes a very competitive half rope in the ice line. I use it for trad climbing too on free climb routes. You can't beat the low impact force / weight comparison. Handles really nice and smooth. Ropes are several years old and they still feel really good, no weird spots.
