Description

Details

Although similar in concept to the Sport, the SpiderJack is a more sensitive performer, rewarding skilled climbers with an amazing sense of line control. Operating on a wider range of rope diameters than the Twin or Sport, the Spider requires threading rope into position for use, a non issue if you use only one end of line. You will instantly recognize smoother rope action while ascending and descending. Merely pulling on line above causes the Spider to gobble rope with a voracious appetite. This same frictionless hunger for loose rope makes branch walking and canopy exploration a gratifying reward for getting out of bed. And when it comes to descending-look out, here comes the Spider...man! For 11mm through 13mm lines.
 
Resides close to the harness similar to an eye to eye split tail. Device only.
(Cannot be attached midline.)

Weight Limitations Review by Terry Hale

I've only used mine for a few climbs so far. I expect my appreciation to increase over time, but I can still offer a couple of cautions. First, I weigh 225 and that seems to be a tipping point for the device's performance. My weight causes the cam to grab the rope so hard that I have to devote one hand just to pulling down the handle to release the device for descent. Worse, my weight makes it impossible to use just my thumb on the wooden lever to control my descent. I am not happy having to use both hands to operate the device for descent. I don't think a 170 pound climber would see these issues.
I am now using an 11.5 mm climbing rope as I found my previous was acting thick for a variety of devices. The 11.5 feeds quite easily through the SpiderJack on ascents, but I'm not sure how well a 13 mm would do. I do note that my 11.5 mm has a tight tape on the end (as sent) and it was actually a bit difficult to twist that end to push it through the device. (Posted on 12/12/2015)

This is the best investment I have made in years. Watch the you tube video before using this device . It shows you all the issues people have with this device and that they are not using it properly. Only one flaw is that if your ground guy grabs the rope to swing you over to another tree or branch it can release the cam and you slide for a foot or so. Other than that this device is well thought out and durable. (Posted on 11/29/2014)
Cool Review by Tyler

The spiderjack is pretty much meant to be used with a spliced rope, which is not exactly my method, I like a steel clip on the end to throw my line. The Dynamea allows for the use of a biner/ clip away from the spiderjack. you want the spiderjack to be clear, and clip on an extension, so that the release levers do not get snagged. I did research on the Dynamea strap, but I am going to have my own custom sewed to save money and beef up the clip attachment. I'll definitely be tying off the spiderjack while idle or cutting.

Bought this piece roughly 3 months ago, this piece is a great tool and time saver, I really like the ablilty to fly down the tree to different work areas and how easily it is to walk those pesky limbs now. No complaints hear just don't bump the release lever by accident or your in for an unsuspecting ride. (Posted on 4/29/2013)
great unit but i like lockjack sport with swivel over all Review by Damon

excellent unit a little sensitive mine is actually is a Spiderjack 2 up graded with a Dyneema strap. The Velcro comes undone at times so i strongly recommend the up grade it's night and day. it aligns the unite better and allows you to disconnect one side instead of both to get around an object like a branch that's between both sides of your rope on a ascent. I also attached it to my Glide saddle using a Rock Exotica Swiva-Biner Single to keep twist to a minimum. I choose to use the Swiva-Biner Single as apposed to a biner and a swivel as it keeps it closer to the saddle then the two separate pieces. I'm not up grading to the longer release with the half pulley as in tight spots i think it will get in the way i've hit mine before reaching over in tight situation. unlike the Lockjack sport it can't be installed or removed without tools and will wear cams quicker than the sport. If you get a chance try them both but these are the best repelling and ascending device i know of if you climb a lot i strongly recommend u get one (Posted on 9/1/2012)
