Tried to get a BD sling but they went out of stock and ended up purchasing the 180cm instead. Wasn't happy at first but love the sling now

I love These Slings!
I use these for climbing, canyoneering, and rope ascending and the work great! They are so much smaller and lighter than the old nylon slings. They cost a little bit more, but it's worth it! I would recommend these to everyone!
I would recommend for some some sport climbing routes where you need the occassional sling. I have several of each size of these and they hold up really well, and the 180 does work as a back up or replacement for the cordelette.
Good, but go Mammut if have option
I thought I'd just buy this one to see if I was missing out with all my 8mm Mammut Dyneema Contact Slings. I'm not. This is more expensive and the weave is more apt for snagging, and the biggest drawback is the sewn connection. It's big and stiff and has no cover like the Mammut,which makes racking more difficult. The Mammut essentially feels like a smooth continuous loop. Other than that, it's the closest thing to the Mammut I've seen and is a close second.
I like the BD dynex runners but these still work awsome
Not So Durable
I bought two of these slings (30 cm) alongside two wild country dyneema slings, and these have worn noticeably faster. lots of fuzzing and stretching as compared with the WC slings, and after less than a year and only about 70 pitches they need to be replaced. i also have a BD dynex 60 cm that's wearing much more gradually.
The 180 Is Fantastic
I have the 180cm version. I use it once in a while as a REEEEEALLY long sling, but more often as a lightweight cord substitute. It knots/unknots easily and is less bulky than cord. It's not ideal for adventure climbing where you might need to cut up your cord in an emergency, but is perfect for cragging.
Good, but BDs are better
I have used a few of these for a while...i think the BD dynex runners are more durable and are virtually the same size and weight
weight is almost non-existent, resilient and durable, and like all slings a wide variety of uses and functions.
great sling durable lightweight, just all round amazing quality. I dont mind putting my life in Petzl's hands.
