This thing looks crazy/super easy to use. Does any one have one/used one?? I don't know if I'd give up cordalette but am curious

This is a great device if used correctly, and yes, it is super easy.

Yes, there are lots of ways to create an equlized anchor. But many of them include a knot. That knot can be pretty hard to untie when the anchor was hanging belay. This equalizer means you never have a knot to untie.

This thing's probably great. I've seen them in action, but it's essentially a slightly more bomber, more expensive Alpine Cock Ring, or ACR if you prefer. The best part about the ACR? You already have one. It's a rappel ring and a cordellete.

There are ways to make the Equalizer redundant: You can use clove hitches on each piece of pro in the anchor or simply tie the whole thing into an overhand master-point. I think these things are great and pretty easy to use.
