The Beal Cobra II is a classic half rope which is a great compromise between weight, stength and handling. It is light and free running making it an excellent choice for long routes at a crag or in the mountains. The Dry Cover treatment on the sheath strands adds resistance to moisture and dirt ingress as well as providing a smoother running though quickdraws. The Cobra II also features a Unicore construction whereby the sheath and core are bonded together for extra safety should your rope get cut. The addition of a Thermo Fluid process stabilses the yarn for a more compact rope with better handling qualities.

Key Features:

• Excellent compromise between strength and lightness.
• Low impact force and raised number of falls sustained.
• The rope doesn’t bunch up and remains supple for the long term.
• Allows escape by abseil even if the sheath is cut thanks to a Unicore construction
• Dry Cover treatment
• Thermo Fluid treatment

Details:

• Half rope - UIAA - CE
• Number of bobbins 40
• Weight per metter 48 g
• Impact force Laboratory 4.85-4.90 kN
• Impact force BEAL Guaranty 5.10 kN
• Number of UIAA Falls Laboratory 18-20
• Number of UIAA Falls BEAL Guaranty 16
• Sheath slippage 0 mm
• Extension during the first fall 35 %
• Static elongation 11,5 %
• Sheath percentage 39%
• Resistance to a factor 1,77 fall over an edge of radius 0.75mm

After doing a little trad using my old sport rope, I quickly decided I needed proper half ropes. However, I had a search about to find anything at a sensible price given that, of course, I had to buy two! The Beal Cobra fitted the bill perfectly. It handles beautifully - none of the rather disconcerting new rope over-slickness, just flows freely and consistenlt, and keeps on doing so despite some heavy use over the last few months. No signs of any wear or nicking, even thought my novice approach to trad means it gets dragged over edges where I should have extended the runners more.

The colour choice is a little limited, but enough - how many colours do you need after all? I went for blue & pink, although this is now officially known as 'red' so that I always put red on the right when climbing, and always pull red after abseiling off - only 1 thing to remember so I'm less likely to forget.

My only criticism is that there is no middle mark. Not essential on a half rope I know, but would be handy on those short routes so I could just double up one rope, not have to flake them both.
