Beal Stinger Rope Review - No 224


Beal Stinger 9.4, $175
Summary: The Beal Stinger, imported by Black Diamond, had just the right amount of stiffness for swift clipping — pull up a bight and slap it in. On the downside, that stiffness contributed to noticeable kinkiness and sheath wear after three or four days of intensive use.
Pros: Light.
Cons: Kinks easily. Sheath bristles up quickly.
Overall grade: B+
