Good Price, Good Features, Mediocre Ergonomics Review by EWY'S Tree Service

I just unboxed this and haven't had an opportunity to use it yet, but I do have some observations about it.

+It is the cheapest (priced) hand ascender on Sherrill.
+Unlike the Petzl, both holes on the bottom are full sized and will each fit a carabiner.
-The additional information says it is Aluminum, but I'm pretty sure it is steel, for it is a bit heavier than the Petzls.
-The handle is a hard plastic which is obviously more slippery than rubber and is also a bit less ergonomic.
-The teeth on the cam are oriented directly outward, instead of downward. I could see this potentially causing more abrasion to the rope.
+/- The directions that came with it indicate that the cam and safety are a one-handed operation, but it is a lot more awkward than the one-handed operation of the Petzls. This is both a +/- because it is an added level of mental security.

Thanks Sherrill! (Posted on 10/9/2017)
