I did try the steins as back up cubes and they are not too cheap , did find they had a habit of falling apart quick ! 6 years is good

The second generation Stein cube was definitely a stronger version.

My Falteimer is still faultless after 10 years.

Although I do only use it ‘for best’.

 

Matty I bet you £8 that these are utter shite!

But mark they look like they are made from the same materials as the faltimer , I bet the metal rods poke out the side in a week but I’ll wager you that for two pints.... after convincing bill he really needed a faltimer in his life , then I lost mine to a tub grinder both of us ended up in gustharts and he had the last one .... so ended up with a courant ....the courant does not fit too great in my kit bag although is not a bad design it does not fold down in wind , it just flips over dumping line every where, I still refuse to get another Stein though...

Whey ... not as shite as I thought it would be !
Time will tell but it seems pretty sturdy and it opens all right when the weights are in , the fact it’s a brighter colour and now my climbing gear fits nicely in too one bag is a plus.
