But here's a question: would this breaking device that climbx is excepting orders for be appropriate for raping single ropes? Or is just for belaying?
It is not suited for belaying or rappelling. That device is best suited as a trash can weight to prevent trash can loss due to high winds. Fill the can with as many of these as you can find for optimal wind resistance performance.

My gym recently had a event to support a local climber who has Leukemia. There was a raffle in which i won a set of Climb X nuts. Anyone have any experience with this brand? Couldn't really find any review / info... Either way support a good cause / win some free gear win win situation! Thanks

Ha! Just stumbled on this thread while looking for something else. IPR violations, industrial espionage and drama, drama, drama, oh my!

Glad I won the Sterling rope and not the nut set...Tongue

That was you?? So random. Thought you said you didn't post, just lurked.

Bring those pirated, and possibly exploding, nuts to seneca and we'll head to the east face. See if we can't take a few falls on em.

What healy has alluded to like 10 times but seems unwilling to actually say is that the Mad Rock guys used to work for 5.10. Walked out the door one day and started Mad Rock, with a shoe line strikingly similar to the 5.10s of the day.

I must have not been paying attention either when 5.10 shoes had a different rubber around the perimeter for edging. It toothed heels for hooking. Both MR innovations if I'm not mistaken...

Well, Young Chu (founder and owner of MadRock) had been the lead shoe designer for Five Ten for many years and was supposedly working on those designs when he departed from 5.10 and started his own company. I have no idea what the legal arrangement was between 5.10 and Chu with respect to intellectual property, but it certainly raised a few eyebrows when his new company beat 5.10 to market with these innovations he was supposedly working on for Five Ten.
