new dodgiest bit of gear i have ever heard ofMay 9, 2014 at 00:34 #1999The Club CatParticipant
You should always trust ‘high speck’ gear, even if there is no testing procedure.
Still not as bad as plastic nuts, or a monkey fist tied in a piece of tat. I swear I read an article were someone had been testing plastic nuts and was surprised when they were more scratched than metal ones… Made them wonder about their durability.May 9, 2014 at 02:56 #2000ThomasParticipant
Ask you’ll be grand maybe appropriate hereMay 9, 2014 at 09:52 #2002tprebsKeymaster
Plastic nuts are grand, they just have a shorter life. they match wallnuts in strength but if you fall on them, they wont be coming out!
the ground spider looks pretty cool. having anchored off windbush before, I would have happily used one of them over tying a sling around a tiny bush and brace against a small stone!May 9, 2014 at 11:28 #2007The Club CatParticipant
I know they’re grand, but if you buy plastic nuts and expect them to last as long as metal ones, you deserve everything you get.

Ground spider looks perfect for blank top outs. Been a few times I wish I had an axe to stick in some turf / soil. This has more points of contact so should be better.
