Anybody know how strong the pommel is on this tool? I've emailed Grivel directly through their website and never heard back. No evidence of the pommel being anything more than plastic attached to the T rated shaft. Seems like a major weak point and while I love climbing on this tool I'm more than a bit dubious about clipping it while setting a screw or using it as part of an anchor set up (why make a hammer that doubles as a chock if the pommel doesn't carry a rating?). Anybody got thoughts or experience here?
