Climbing Gear Review rating B+

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.
