Anybody have strong opinions about these vs Beal Cobra II Unicore Goldendry? Need to get some halves at some point...
Generally the Beal vs Mammut discussion boils down to:
1. Mammut ropes last longer
2. Beal ropes handle better
So that's the tradeoff...
Ring Dick, he just did me a very reasonable deal on some 50m Beal half ropes as didn't want the Mammuts. Can't recommend this retailer enough, always buy from him.
IMO some of the Beal ropes have more stretch (Cobra 11.5% vs Genesis 9%) than I would ideally prefer for general UK summer cragging, however I would be very happy climbing with them in Winter or in the Alps.
I pretty much agree with everything said above, apart from the bit about me being a good retailer, that is nonsense, but thanks Ian.
In short they are both excellent ropes and you won't go far wrong whichever option you go for. I personally prefer the slightly prefer the harder wearing Genesis, but that is only really relevant if you are lobbing off all the time.
If I were buying myself I'd probably just get whichever was cheaper at the time.
As Ian says if you do want a pair of Cobras give me a call and I'll sort out a deal for you.
Hopefully you will still have some left when I get paid at the end of the month then... :P
I'm hoping I won't have any left by the end of the month! That may be a little optimistic however.
