Why dont you take a picture of whatever dumb ass clap trap you are proposing so we can actually understand how dumb it may be.

Do you really want me to get out my camera to take a picture of a rap sling with different sized rappel rings in it? Really, you've never seen a rope with a rap ring in a bight?

Sound's like you've never rapped off a biner block in your life so maybe you should stop screaming how ignorant you are.

All it sounds like you are doing is trying to save $1.39 plus tax to have a high likelihood of snagging your rope.

Actually after climbing three or five peaks on a week trip to some remote backcountry cirque which I had to hike 20 miles to, I would have done maybe 5-20 rappels. So I would save some change, but importantly not have to hike in garbage on the mountain for other people to clean up.

It's poor form, rude, and literally illegal to leave sling in some places. Do you want a picture of that concept as well?

Oh and instead of asking us retards why don't you actually test this rube goldberg sling retrieval method yourself in a safe environment?

Of course I have. It worked fine, because 5 feet off the ground anything works. Now I've come here to ask informed people their opinion. That doesn't include you.

You people are hilarious. I don't mind the forum popo but let me know when one of you comes in that is informed.
