Gear Review

4 5

good for the most part

at first appraisal it seems really cool. i use it while roofing and it works great for that even with a huge rope, add another and some foot straps and climbing a rope is made easy. the thing i didn't like about it is the little teeth that bit into the rope. i realize it has to grab on somehow but i get the feeling that it is killing the life of my rope. like i said i use it for roofing and when i use the company rope hey i'm all about it, but i don't wanna try it on my expensive climbing rope.

It should only affect the life of the rope if you're falling onto it, if you're just using it to climb it shouldn't affect the rope any more than other rope gear. It's definitely better than using the old prusik method!
