Worth it...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These slings are great for the trad climber on a budget, good for clipping cams and reducing rope drag. My only complaint is that they suck to rack as an alpine quick draw... the 16 mm thickness making it very hard to keep the draw streamlined and even just extending the quick draw(lost a carabiner form that...) Defiantly rack these over the shoulder but other than that extremely good deal for a product that's strong, lightweight, and just over all awesome.

Personal anchor system

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use these slings strictly for personal protection on sport routes. Throw a biner thru a bolt and you are safe. Super simple to set up a personal anchor system at the top of a route to clean up and lower down. The colors are rad too!

Perfect

These are my go to slings for cleaning anchors. Super strong, which adds much needed confidence when hanging 80 feet above ground!

Is this nylon or dyneema/spectra? Polyamide...

Posted on

Is this nylon or dyneema/spectra? Polyamide is a generic subunit material name for both but their properties are very different and affect how one would use them-safety issues. I get the impression from the recycle term that it may be mixed hence this is not specified. Can Mammut shed some light on this?

Best Answer Responded on

Dyneema, spectra, and dynex slings are all brand names for similar materials made mostly of ultra high molecular weight polyethylene combined with nylon strands. Unlike nylon, this material can not absorb color, hence the addition of nylon to all slings. As you can see from the picture, the Mammut Transformer sling is a combination of nylon and the UHMWPE material. The sling will have some of the dynamic properties of nylon, since it is a combination. Similarly, melting points and slippage factors for tied knots will be a combination of the two materials.

If that is the case then it should not be knotted as a knot will significantly weaken this sling

Cool

I am surprisingly happy with this purchase, I was buying some dynex slings and added this to the mix just because it was unique. I will be buying some more for making anchors. Sometimes the 16mm width can be visually reassuring in comparison to 10mm dynex slings.

I found this item unique, in that it's made from recycled plastic. The sling feels good, have not seen any wear or tear due to fibers catching on rock crystals. Would like to buy more.
