tommiNot perfect

Voted 4/5

We use this ladders in profesional usage for a few months now.
At first, its a big help and makes a lot of ascents easier, but there are some points that could be better.
The handling is sometimes a little bit cirquitous, the footsteps tend to distort, and its necessary to adjust the steps befor the usage.
That depends of the material its strong and of course, very light, but my wish would be the same material like the normal slings, probably Dyneema, that would make the ladder more heavy but also better to use and of course stronger.
Conclusion: An absolute helpful piece of gear, not perfect but nearby.
