Beal Stinger Unicore Dry Cover 9.4mm x 60m

5 reviews   |  

Sorry, this product is out of stock. We can notify you when this product is available:

The Beal Stinger Unicore Dry Cover 9.4mm x 60m is a single climbing rope designed for sport climbers operating at a solid or high level.

This is a rope that is preferred for very hard routes requiring minimalist weight and enhanced handling. The Beal Stinger holds an incredible number of falls for its weight and is so smooth running that it results in an appreciable increase in energy when clipping. 

NB: Like the Joker this rope requires modified belaying technique. It also has lower abrasion resistance than ropes of greater diameter, making it a true specialist.

Every filament in the sheath of Beal DryCover ropes is treated with a water repellent chemical before the rope is manufactured. This chemical covering is polymerised at high temperature to prolong the life of the dry treatment, thus adding to the durability of the rope. On a Beal DryCover rope, the core is not treated.

  • Improved resistance to grit and to humidity
  • Limited water absorption
  • Improved rope-running through karabiners and belay devices
  • Improved abrasion resistance in normal climbing use

The UNICORE process bonds the sheath of the rope to the core. This prevents sheath slippage, but also helps to keep the structural integrity of the rope if it is cut or damaged.

  • Sheath slippage is eliminated
  • Allows safe escape should the sheath be cut
  • Rope cutting is easy: no hot knife required
  • Improved rope-running through karabiners and belay devices
  • Reduction of shrinkage in water by more than 50%

    5yr Update

    Just thought I would update my review from 2016. I have just cut 5m off the end of my Stinger so down to 55m from the original 60m. I found it hard to believe it has lasted so well, a lot of hard work and hanging about has occurred in those 5 years (it hasn't been my only rope in use in that period but it has borne the brunt of working projects) In fact it was so good I bought an 80m in early 2018 to take abroad and it is doing really well too.

    Very good rope

    I used two times already, and it perforned extremely well. And the delivery from RockRun was perfect, as usual. I recomend it!

    A bargain buy

    Excellent rope and very good value. It handles really well and is nice and light. Might invest in an 80m rope in the future.

    So far so good. As

    So far so good. As I am a firm fan of the joker I expected this to be a slightly more robust version of that rope and I bought it because the joker was out of stock. So far it's hard to tell them apart, the stingers sheath feels a bit harder wearing but too early to say. Supple and very easy to handle, a joy to pay out on a Gri Gri 2.
