Once you get this dialed in to the rope you’re using ( which is much much easier than some reviews are claiming), the thing is amazing. One tool for drt and srt climbing is genius. This is a game changer. (Posted on 12/4/2019)

Hello. I've been climbing the Akimbo for two weeks now and I'm very happy with the device. I enter the tree with it, climb SRT and double rope and with spikes I can also use it as a backup, because the system is so nice and short. So a device for everything! There are just two small downers:
1. The Akimbo must be set very precisely - for each rope, each rope condition (wet / dry) and type of use (SRT / DSKT). This often means changing the settings at the top of the tree. Interesting would be a kind of guide on how to achieve the best results quickly and easily.
2. A rescue with complete takeover works (with additional friction), but is not allowed according to the manual.
Nonetheless an ingenious device and I am looking forward to the EU approval. (Posted on 5/15/2019)

I have been waiting a long time for the Akimbo to come out, it was worth the wait. Like every thing there is a learning curve, start slow and low like they always say with something new. The convenience of being able to attach midline is so nice and easy no parts to drop or misplace. Going up is so slick I use the notch double cam foot ascender and a S.A.K.A. knee ascender mini. The combination has been working out really well. Once you get it dialed in the descent can really be smooth. The notch foot ascender hardly needs anything to get started within a foot or two from the ground it is working well. (Posted on 3/12/2019)

Awsome ! Been using bull dog bone for a long time, had been waiting it seemed like for ever and didn't disappoint has preformed perfect. adjust to many rope types fast love that ! just flip levers pull cams outward spin and push back done. Quick on and off rope ingenious one flip of thumb bottom and top open at once but unless device not fully extended can not open . I use neck tether and spring clip makes it so I just pull back and I'm free of device and already move around tree usually in one motion . descents at first can be a little grippy so adjust device fine tune it to rope better then sliding down line .Srt great double line great, feels a little bit like zig zag on double this is going to be in all srt climbers bags for along time game changer . Thanks rock exotica for puting it in stores and testing. (Posted on 2/19/2019)

Smoooth as silk, on and off the rope so quick and easy. Fine tune easy. I have been waiting a long time, every since they talked about it a few years ago. It was worth the wait. (Posted on 2/15/2019)
