How to use 10.5mm Top Gun II correctly, precautions, lifetime, care and maintenance with instructional pictures.
10.5mm Top Gun Unicore 70m Dry
The Beal Top Gun 10.5mm UNICORE puts up an endless fight against the rock and consistent falling. Using Beal’s UNICORE technology, The Top Gun’s core and sheath are permanently bonded together to eliminate sheath slippage and improve performance and safety. The Top Gun delivers high-level results and a record number of falls for its diameter. One of the most impressive ropes on the market. STRONG POINTS: • UNICORE Process • Low impact force + very high number of falls • Abrasion and water resistant with Golden Dry or Dry Cover USES: Indoor and outside climbing.

No voice, but the demo speaks for itself as Beal cuts a traditional rope and a rope with Unicore technology. The difference is certainly dramatic.
A pictoral representation of UIAA-101 and EN-892 standards for ropes.
The UIAA equipment standard provides a baseline for equipment performance in a test lab under controlled conditions on new equipment. Although these test conditions are relevant to the conditions encountered climbing, conditions encountered at the crags and the condition of the equipment are equally important. This recommendation from the UIAA member federation The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) provides vital equipment information that is NOT explicitly addressed in the standard, particularly failure modes of the equipment and recommendations for the use, inspection, maintenance, and retirement of equipment.
