 I have seen in some climbing movies and the draws they use on the wall. Most are Petzl and say that on the sling. A black sling and it says petzl on it. Anywho I have never seen anyone with that kind of petzl sling unless it was on a climbing movie, or they were pro. Can you buy these or are they advertisment? This is kinda stupid I know but im jest asking. I did email Petzl and they are so good that they never emailed me back.

Yep, you can get them.
I own one. I bought it at my local PETZL dealer... the thing is quite tuff but is not nice when you make a knot on it...

 Thanks for the reply but I dont think you know what I was talking about. The draws that Chris Sharma used in Realization, were Petzl sprint quickdraws. But they said Petzl in white on the black sling,runner, webbing, or whatever. And why I havent seen anyone that was not pro with these draws. I have some sprint quickdraws but the runner is jest black. I jest want to know if you can buy these draws or is it advertizment for petzl, and jest for pros. And if you dont know want im trying to describe look at the draws that were on Realization-5.15, done by Chris Sharma.

I have never seen them for sale, but they appear to be the standard Petzl "dogbone" with the rubber keeper for the bottom 'biner. And, if you look closely, they always have Spirits, top and bottom.

I assumed that because they say "PETZL" in bold white letters on a black background that they were for sponsored climbers. (That are likely to get their photos published in the rags, therefore justifying Petzl's sponsorship.)

Also, sometimes I have seen what appear to be Petzl "dogbones" with "BEAL" (referring to the rope manufacturer) on them.

 Thanks man, I guess you are thinking like im thinking. The big white letters are jest for advertizment. Or how ever you spell that.
