/ Beal Iceline Identification
...sorry, couldn't help myself...
Generally if they just say Dry then no its just the normal type. They need to say golden dry to be golden dry!
They also seem quite old as the end markings as quite old fashioned. My Beal ropes are 6-7 years old and the end markings a much newer type as they have an individual code on them. Don't know when this was added though. Reckon you could find out though.
Also this doesn't look very neat so could not be the original end markings. They could have been remarked as its unlikely they would leave the Beal factory looking so messy.
Anyway sorry for intruding.
but email beal, they may have changed it over the years.
I've got the yellow rope which is Golden Dry... Might have changed though.
Beal only do the Iceline in the Golden Dry, there isn't an option of just the Dry Cover (certainly in the last 5 years or so).

You need to check the link to the Beal website further up. I think that Beal make them but they are not imported for sale in the UK. I don't see why you'd want an Iceline in anything other than Golden Dry though.

OK, I see now that they do.

You could get one by special order...but...

Looking at the picture this appears to be an unused but quite old rope and almost certainly pre-dates Golden Dry.
Because it doesnít have the detailed end markings of newer ropes (which allow you to track the rope, its treatment, and manufacture date), and no heat-shrink over the information, we suspect this rope is at least 5 years old.
Unfortunately itís not possible to give further information without seeing the original hangtag information.
