In crevasse rescue where the load is cyclical(on and off) and its horizontal(gravity will pull it off the DMM micro pulley as it has no sides), means that in the DMM rev's case, the rope will fall off the pulley every bleeping time and creates more friction than if one were using JUST normal carabiners as the side of the pulley(such as it is) will cut into the rope making it even harder to pull. I won't even talk about the obvious fact that DMM rev's axle is far too small and bends creating monstorous friction freezing said bearing under load of more than a couple hundred pounds. Lets see standard 3:1 with 200lb(man+pack) in hole = 600lb load. In short, DMM are barely ok for hauling a haul bag, but nothing larger.
Thanks Chief for demonstrating, once again, you have never practiced what you are espousing. Keep digging deeper. Quite interesting watching how deep you will humiliate yourself.
And that is according to ... WHOM?
