The Beal Flyer II is a very durable, yet lightweight, all around lead rope, that offers climbers the best choice for a "one rope that does it all" purchase. This rope has one of the lowest impact force ratings in the industry. At 64 grams per meter it is only a few grams per foot heavier than the 9.2-10.0 mm class of ropes, yet held 10 falls in testing. I has also passed the 1.77 factor fall over an edge radius of .75 mm. test, which gives this rope a "sharp edge" rating. The 9.8% elongation adds to the extremely low impact force, and delivers very soft catches, making it very belayer friendly. The high elongation rate will require longer recovery time after a hard fall, so keep that in mind when working the crux moves. This rope exhibits no sheath slippage.
All Beal ropes have a dry treatment on the sheath, and they are also available with a "Golden Dry" coating that protects the inner core material also.
The Beal Flyer II has an easy to spot center mark, to aid when setting up rappels, and is available in 60 and 70m lengths.
