Beal Diablo 9.8 mm
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Building on the success of the Diablo 10.2, BEAL developed the Diablo 9.8 UNICORE for more demanding climbers-with its very fluid running sheath, the Diablo 9.8 Diablo performs even better when pulling slack and clipping than 'classic' ropes of smaller diameter and lower weight.
As you step up your climbing ability, you become less reliant upon projecting cords and more dependent on light-but-tough ropes for redpoint and flash attempts. The Beal Diablo Unicore 9.8mm Single Rope offers smooth running and quick clipping, but requires the attention of a vigilant belayer since its aggressive design may not brake as easily as gym ropes in an ATC. A force rating of just 8.2 kN means that during the rare lead fall, the Diablo absorbs shock with ease.

Just like its award winning big brother, the Diablo 9.8 from BEAL is all about handling and feel. It's unique Unicore construction better fuses the rope's core and sheath to improve safety, reduce wear and tear, and improve handling. Thanks to it's long lasting supple qualities and smooth sheath, friction is greatly reduced when pulling the rope up to clip or when taking in slack on a belay, giving it the feel of a much smaller rope with the security of the large diameter.
