Heavy compared to prussac cord. But excellent if your a repelling a lot and great for raping of short multi pitch routes where weight is not an issue. Brought this year and used on the multi pitches around orpierre- perfect.

Good piece of gear - I rappel using either belay/prusik or this. On long routes or alpine I may leave behind as it adds weight but for single or shorter routes it's great. Very useful kit on a static line if instructing next to some-one ..

BF STAFF REVIEW: Used to ''shunt'' routes when I cant get hold of a partner to hold my ropes. used a lot at Nesscliffe, I reckon its a cracking piece of kit. It doesn't use teeth but a cam system so doesn't destroy your ropes. When used for what its designed for and within a backed up self belay system its great. Use it properly and safely and it is confidence inspiring. Allows you to get out there and work roped projects with confidence.

The shunt is the oldest and most used piece of equipment that I own! It is really useful in so many different situations, from backing up an abseil, to setting up at the top of a crag, working routes and backing up route setting. It is kind to the rope because the mechanism pinches instead of using teeth and is really easy to set up. Even though it is really useful, it is a fairly specialised piece of equipment and I imagine that most climbers will not have the need for one. I use it the most when I am working with groups or clients or will be abseiling frequently. However most climbers could replace it with a couple of pounds worth of prussic cord! If you have an intended use for it then it will be unbeatable. However if you envisage taking it to the crag with you every time you climb, I think that you will probably end up leaving it at home most days.
