Your first dogbone.
The Petzl Axess Sling is a simple, durable dogbone that helps you learn the ways of the sport climber without a hassle. Its polyester webbing remains stiff in order to help you clip efficiently, and the String insert on the end prevents the sling from moving around when you clip it.

A Nice, Stiff Dogbone!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is a very stiff dogbone! The top loop is a little tight to fit 2 biners through, unless they're small-small biners, so it's not the greatest dogbone if you want something that can double between sport and trad. However! ...If you're short, this is great for sport!!!! You know those times when you say, "Why is that bolt so far out of reach, did Michael Jordan bolt this?!?" In those situations, I just flip this bad boy upside down, give it a little bit of a feisty swing, and boom! I've got a draw hung!!
I bought 5 of these in the longer length as replacement dogbones, just because a) you should replace dogbones at least every 5 years, and b) They look like they'll be incredibly sturdy, stay stiff, and just be the work horse for the abuse I plan to put them through!!
