Beal Joker as a 1/2 rope


has anyone used the Beal "Joker" ropes,....
how do they handle?   prone to kinking?

i'm retiring my old set of 1/2 ropes and am looking at the Jokers but am not sold on them yet..  over perhaps the Mammut 1/2 ropes


No experience with Joker, but will give 2 thumbs up for the Mammut Genesis 1/2s - three years of ice and rock, still has good 'hand', no flattening even to ends, knots easy but not soft.  Even minimal fuzz to sheaths.  Great rope.  Good luck picking (a gear whore nightmare).  Dale
