  1. Not CE marked (like the Zig-Zag), but for what it's worth, the stainless steel links are ANSI rated at over 8000 LBS MBS, ( the neptune coated friction links at over 16000 intact) and the aluminum spine, arms, and attach point are all aircraft grade 7075 aluminum alloy.
  2. I have heard good reports from users of the KM Max, Scandere, and Xstatic with the Bulldog Bone.
  3. Looks a bit like the debris of the carpenter ants.
  4. Baz, please see private message. I might as well post this recent picture here also (photo credit to Francesco)
  5. Here is a Bulldog Bone that I made recently for an Italian climber (photo credit to Francesco). It is midline, does SRT or DdRT, and has an adjustable bollard, and optional nano swivel. available since 2014.
  6. Italian climber who just received his Bulldog Bone this week.
  7. Several users have recommended for the Bone the KM Max or Scandere ropes also.
  8. If you like that 13 mm rope in the Bone, I bet you would love the KM Max, Scandere, or Cougar much better.
  9. Those brakes and the winch.
  10. The gods must be crazy il Postino
  11. It is called the SharpForce chain sharpener (which comes in 3/16 or 7/32 sizes) https://www.amazon.com/Husqvarna-653000035-SharpForce-Chain-Sharpener/dp/B0044U4TC2/ref=asc_df_B0044U4TC2/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=241967373029&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=13430713228371801340&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9009968&hvtargid=pla-438686039422&psc=1
  12. The Husquvarna file holder allows the round file to be rotated as you file. Also the raker file can be removed or turned over easily if so desired, as the holder slides open so that the round file can be swapped sides for either side of the chain teeth.

  14. The Bulldog Bone is not a good option for a two person load. Even if it held the weight, it would exceed my recommendation and upon release may not stop the load due to momentum.
