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.


It 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.

I got a few dodgy looks from the Black leading rope. But I think it's pretty ace, and the fact its skinny and stretches, not a static rope. Apart from reviewing just the colour... which isn't that helpful. Its a brilliant sport rope, slides through the Grigri very, very easy. You can use it in exactly the same way as an ATC (with grigri 2), never sticks at all. Its seems ok with an ATC, gives people abit of a surprise if theyre not used to it. It weighs next to nothing, and clips very easily. I now hate using 10mm ropes as i've got so used to the Joker.
Wouldnt use it on single pitch Grit as it'd get trashed. Its pretty stretches and feels really comfortable to take decent falls onto. I havn't used it outside yet, but would use my old Elderid for grit. Also comes with a nice rope bag and mat!

Great ropes and fantastic colours have used as both half and singles for trad and toprope, although does run a little fast when a single its still manageable as long as you second dosent mind getting lowered quite quickly :)

I bought the golden dry version, but can't yet comment on the resistance to water/dirt. However, the treatment appears to contribute to its very smooth, almost effortless handling - it really is a joy to use.

It's also very light and therefore a superb choice when you've finished working a route and decided to go for it instead!

A great choice for most climbers, even relatively new ones, as familiarity with the rope overcomes any initial issues with its slickness or stretch likely to be experienced by both new and long in the tooth craggers too.

Again a first class level of service from BF.
