  1. Do you have any pictures of the pants and your leg? Did you contact Solidur? If so what was their reply? Like stere said a higher class of pant may have worked better. I think we often forget that all our "professional grade" saws are either borderline class 2/3 or straight up class 3. So class 1 protection is a bit of a joke really. I've heard stories of the same happening with other brands. The class certification testing is a bit shitty really, doesn't really account for if you get hit with the push side of the bar at full revs and the revs are kept on. Glad to hear you're healed up though man
  2. As soon as there is any cracks or signs of stress (i.e. white stress marks) it damage to any of the webbing despite how minor, your helmet will not pass an inspection My way of looking at it is, if it doesn't pass an inspection then I don't even query if I can still use it. Inspections are there for a reason Bin it and get a new one, way easier than getting a new head
  3. Drenaline is good you're always running a pulley in the top (ie ropeguide or pulley saver) It's 32 strand so if you're running it through forks etc it wears really quickly. Also if you're using spikes with it be real care, it's no where near as sturdy as a 24 strand that can take a bit of a knock and your can pull stands back into place. Personally I use "naughty" donaghys cougar. But I've found cousin atrax to be super nice in the zz. Also yale limelite is pretty nice.
  4. I keep hearing people mentioning about using a pulley system to finish burying their splices. Just wondered if people have any pictures of this. Never needed one until now, having real issues with a horrible batch of non CE cougar
  5. I've been using for a few months on ddrt. Found it to be really nice, low stretch, great with ascenders, doesn't milk, splice fits through mechanical devices easily and is nice and soft in the hand. Only trade off is it seems to frey fairly easily

  7. Does anyone have any tips on using a foot ascender with the talon spikes or know which attachable ascenders are compatible with them?
  8. In need of a new kit bag. Really like the look and idea of the Courant cross pro kit bag but slap me and call me little miss Daisy if I'm going to spend that much on a kit bag. What's the best out there or are there any similar to the courant that I won't have do an entire day of contacting to be able to afford?
  9. Are you using it whit hitch or mechanicals? Planing to use it whit ZZ Using it with the petzl zigzag
  10. I've got a 60m length, super smooth and nice. Very soft in the hands, I'm very happy with it but not sure on its durability
  11. Got any pictures or info on said new ropes?
  12. Cousins atrax 11.5mm is one of the nicest ropes I've ever had. Nice and soft in the hand but great through devices and ascenders
  13. I've got the arbpro Evo 2's, got them from gustharts. Some of the comfiest boots I've ever worn. Super light and great for climbing
