For years I have used Beal ropes after going through very bad experiences with Mammut ones, Beal and Mammut being the only options at my local wall until relatively recently. Beal's are ok ropes... until you try something better
I currently use a Sterling Velocity 9.8. It's the best rope I have ever used. I keep it for the crag and despite it being not cheap I would buy it again since it's still in very good conditions after almost two years.
For the wall I have always used the cheapest rope I could find (typically Mammut's Promo), although I once fell for Beal's Unicore concept (not cheap). Never again.

Hi, I think it may have been me misunderstanding the whole concept. However, I thought binding the sheath with the core would increase the durability of the rope. In fact, the sheath gave away much faster than with normal cabled ropes until the core was fully exposed. Obviously, in this case, it wasn't traumatic as that's what the Unicore concept is all about. I had a 10.5 mm Wall Master, that is, a rope specifically designed for indoor use which I have used indoor only. It lasted much less than other ropes and cost much more. That's all really. Maybe it works for top roping.
