    Stronger and lighter.

    Sterling's Dyneema Sewn Runners absorb less water than traditional slings, making them a favorite of alpine climbers. Gram-counting, wire-gate-loving, celery-chomping rock climbers will also appreciate their lightweight design and high cut resistance.
    • Note: Sterling doesn't recommend using these slings for dynamic falls because they offer little elongation
    • Item #STE0041

    Light, but not TOO light.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Every trad climber needs lots of shoulder slings for long alpine routes, and these are the perfect balance of beefy construction and light weight, slim profile-ness. I think it's important for every piece of gear on my harness to serve more than one purpose, and these slings fit that criteria. I've had other, lighter slings that I've used in the past, but I've never felt comfortable using them as part of my anchor system, or as a prusik back-up for my belay hand. With these slings I feel much more comfortable (even though Dyneema shouldn't be used in an anchor system, we know necessity is a mother and you sometime need to make the best of a tough situation).



    In terms of wear, after half a season of climbing on alpine granite in Washington state, these slings are showing much less fruzzing than other dyneema slings I used from other brands.

    I don't usually comment like this, but your review caught my eye. As far as I know one of the applications dyneema is least suitable for is forming friction hitches, it grips very poorly and is sensitive to the heat generated in that particular use. It seems a bit more questionable to use dyneema as a prusik, than to use it as an anchor material which (as long as you are clipped in with some sort of dynamic tether, aka the rope) is quite safe.

    am i supposed to leave the plastic covering on that covers the fused ends?
