Oh no! Not another zigzag :(

Recommended Posts

Lots but you'll be climbing for a few years less with the extra strain a prusick puts on your joints so longterm false economy IMO.

Agree with all comments about it shouldn't happen but I'll still be using mine every climb as ain't been to the osteopath once since changing to the zigzag to have my lower back sorted so with that saving I could have bought about 3 I'm the time.

 

V.T??

That's what I progressed from which was definitely a step up from blakes or prusick but not as responsive or as predictable in changing weather conditions.

Zigzag in the wet is the same as the dry, believe me iv tried in rain that men should not have the work in, think silky has a good photo off that day too!

Also never have to dress a zigzag like a vt so can all be done 1 handed while balancing yourself with other without the feer of it slipping as you applied you wate.

so is my vt just it has to be spot on with the rope i never dress mine but like i say its a perfect setup for my rope. When i first used the vt i had to dress it until i had got the cord the right length

I'm sorry but it shouldn't crack at all...

 

if this was the first reported problem then fair enough, but it isn't.

 

we trust out lives in this gear....

 

reminds me of a thread about a petzl sequoia harness where the buckle broke.... as if our job isn't hard enough or dangerous enough with out having to treble check our gear every 30 seconds, even though we should every time we climb.... we (well I) want complete faith in my gear.... im sure we all do.

 

it's not acceptable in my book.... don't really instil confidence dose it?
