The Beal Joker Unicore is Beals ultimate rope, the latest creation of the Beal Lab, born with the help of the BEAL Team climbers. It’s the only rope in the world which conforms to all 3 dynamic rope norms.


The Beal JOKER is in effect a single rope, a half rope and a twin rope at the same time. This rope will be loved by the most extreme climbers, seeking lightness and easy running, as much as by more traditional climbers seeking a multi-purpose rope for ridge routesor classic face routes, mixed ice and snow, or snow alone.

STRONG POINTS:
• Multi use.
• Ultra light.
• Ultra smooth.

Jokers are now made with Unicore Technology. The UniCore process joins the rope core to the sheath without affecting handling or flexibility. This eliminates slip even in the worst conditions (e.g. top roping or active belaying). If the sheath becomes torn or cut, the core and sheath will remain bonded so that the climber can pass the damaged section and doesnt become stuck. The advantages of a UniCore rope include:

• Sheath slippage elimination. 
• Allows safe escape should the sheath be cut. 
• Makes rope cutting easy with a simple blade without any heating. 
• Reduction of shrinkage in water by more than 50 %.

ATTENTION :
Used as a ‘single’ this rope may not be grippable by all hands, and in all devices: in effect its fineness makes it a rope which demands expert holding and controlling. ‘Classic’ devices, designed for higher diameter ropes, will give reduced braking, and some self-locking auto-brakes may simply not work.

Got this rope from Banana Fingers about a year ago, ordered the wrong but they changed no quibbles and quick delivery. The rope is light and save weight in your pack, runs very smooth, definitely not for beginners and watch the belay device, bur very good.

Great rope, with masses of flexibility. I wish I'd got one earlier, used it as a half and full rope, its great to swap between the two depending upon what you are climbing. I wouldn't recommend it for beginners due to being so skinny. Taking it to the alps this summer too.
Great price at BF too

Only done three routes and no falls, so not a full review. It handles well and comes with a nice bag with a built in mat.
I just wanted to comment on the weight. My 50m weighs 3050g, that's 61g per metre. Quoting 53g per metre is misleading, and I've reduced my rating as a result.

I've had this rope (Beal Joker 9.1mm 5m Golden Dry in Pink) for a few months now and I've very pleased with it, although it is slightly more smooth through the belay device it's nothing that makes a difference even to people who've only just started climbing and belaying have had no problems with it.

One thing I would say is that I also own the Mammut Revelation and I prefer that rope to this, not to say there's a problems with this one but I just like the feel and the rope in general more, might not be the same for everyone though.
