zecicuwrote a review of Beal Flyer ll Climbing Rope - 10.2 mm on September 16, 2008
I have used one for the past 2 years (about 40 days out) on trad & sports, on single and multi pitches. One of its great qualities is that it does not kink, which helps enormously with rope management and making sure that the rope does not get stuck when you pull them after rappels. Also, it feels thinner (easier to clip, manage, belay etc.) than a lot of the skinnier ropes that I have belayed with. The dry treatment lasted about a year. The sheath still looks good after 2 years with only very very slight fraying where I hang-dog. On the down side, the middle marker is very, very hard to find on the purple version of the rope: not enough contrast. I do consider buying one of these again when I retire the current one. I wish they would make a version that changes patterns at the half way point though.
