the real problem
with this product is that most of us are using screamers on half our placements. I just think this was a poorly thought out idea trying to combine these two items and charge more for it with a less than top market screw.

The level of workmanship and design on this screw is excellent. They place faster than BD's and Grivels, and are worth the extra $$$. Paired with a few 360's for pockets, they make a great set-up. The dyneema runners result in very little of the additional screw cost.
