Nice for going in direct

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Like everybody says, these are particularly great for clipping into anchors. Softer, less jolty feel than dyneema runners makes cleaning/multi-pitch belaying a bit less nerve-racking. I did get a little burn on one when a rope ran against it, so I worry a bit about longevity. But they're nice for now.

Pretty cool...

    The slings do what they need to do but my only complaint is the cost... A guy can buy webbing, tie a water knot, and blam!



    The difference in cost is AMAZING!



    But... that being said, Metolius is a great company and I am proud to say I own a couple of these that have been helpful and durable. That's all a climber can ask for!

    Sweet Slings!

      If you are looking for a solid nylon runner the Metolius 18mm Open Nylon Sling is always a good choice. I have about a dozen in different lengths and they are really all that you can ask for in a nylon runner. I love that they come in assorted colors, it's always a surprise, you never know what you're gonna get!

      sport cleaning, great for the $

        For Nylon, they are thinner than some of the other alternatives and crazy cheapo for those not into the prices of dyneema.

        I haven't had any issue fitting these into any particular harnesses for cleaning or whatever. Used them for the past season and have noticed some mild wear/fray. I barely used these to set any kind of anchors or belay system and mostly used them only to clean sport routes.

        They're still usable, and I'd get more if I need extra nylon slings. I'll probably try out the BlackDiamon version next to compare wear n tear. These do look cooler, if nothing else.
