trango cinch? whos using one?

Recommended Posts

hi just wondering what the recent opinion on the trango cinch is? iv read the other posts about it, but what do the users think about them after all this time, better than a friction hitch? and what is the best rope to do with it?

I use one with blaze (11mm) and it is sweet. I have been told though that you aren't supposed to use it commercially when I had my kit checked for one of the 3atc comps.

As Rich said, I also use one on my blaze lanyard, havent had any issues, although i am under the impression it would work better with a 10mm cord

Works very well with 10mm, but doesnt grab reliably like it does with 11mm. It is nice to be able to pull line through one handed though, can only do that with 10mm or smaller.

How would you use this in your climbing set up just on a lanyard? Can it be used on your mainline or a secondary

 

Slowly getting up to date with gizmos
