I've just bought myself a pair of Beal Iceline 8.1 ropes. They are in great condition; I've inspected them for all the obvious bits and pieces and they seem to be as good as new! I know the guy that has sold them to me; he seldom climbs and says he hasn't ever taken a fall on them.
That aside, he's said the ropes are "about 10 years old". On the Beal website it says a rope should be retired after 10 years.
Why is this? And how long have you been using your ropes?
