Voted 5/5

The Dartwin was the option for me, when Petzl made the Sarken recall.
I climb the Dartwin for two years now and cant say that I miss anything.
The front points are long and strong enough, the placement is great and the durability is awesome.
The sidelock Binding was a little bit unusual in the beginning, but after a few times i really love that binding system.
