Recommended Posts

Was using this a week ago and was fine used it yesterday done this so took it off the rope cleaned it then put it back on and still kept creeping I’ve tried it on two ropes 11.8 and 11.7 keeps doing it still
Zig zag is only 14 months old being used 4-6 times per week tho so I have had the use of it
Just had to climb off a basic Prussik need get a new zig zag ordered ASAP

Mine creeps like a good'un but I've been running it on velocity (11.3) for about two years. I'll replace both soon

2 years is good going. You must climb really slow or something 

Mine's probably not taken as much weight as yours.

Nearly 3 years out my zigzag,but im not an everyday climber and i now run it in 12.5mm.

Fucked elbows,thicker rope easier to grab.

Looks like your gonna have to bite the bullet and buy another
