I've used it several times

Great piece of gear. Leashes aren’t for everybody, but if you need a doubl leash, make sure you get one like this that spins. My one concern is that I don’t know it’s beak strength. I hope it’s low enough to not get pulled down by an ice fall, I do trust BD but I find it strange that it’s not rated.

Biner bent on second climb

I will likely try these again but I bought a set at Michigan Ice Fest last season. One of the biners bent so the gate doesn't close on the second climb on the first day using them. First time I have ever been disappointed with a Black Diamond product in 20+ years.

Another great bit of BD gear!

Light, small, well made, “just works.” I get the “leashless” idea I just can’t imagine risking dropping a tool.

They Spin

Nice light weight leashes. Locking 'biners help these stand out from the competition. The elastic is low resistance--almost unnoticeable. The black color contrasts well with most ropes, making it easy to avoid messy tangles when following.

Solid option

If you need a leash this is a good option. Screwgate biners securely attach to your tools. I am not a big fan of climbing with tethers but in certain situations dropping and axe is day ending event or worse. In those situations this leash from BD is a solid option.

Do their job. Would be

Do their job. Would be nice to have these offered in full strength so they could be used in anchor building.

Peace of mind on ice

I've used it several times

I have poor circulation so I'm always worried that my fingers will go numb and I'll drop a tool. These leashes give me peace of mind that they'll never land on my belayer or leave me with 1 tool to finish the climb. They leashes are a bit long, however, and do get caught on bulbous ice or occasionally tangled with the rope, so you have to be cognizant of where they're at as you move up the climb.

good upgrade from the old style

The spinner leash is just a bit longer than the old model of this leash system. The extra length is great because it gives enough room to move without taking away my reach. The carabiner attachments are more than you need but the carabiners offer great security for the tools. The swivel also helps the leash from getting tangled while leading.
