    I think I found the manufacturer of the CE lanyard rope. It is listed as 11mm in the tefulberger specs but it feels smaller. This manufacturer lists it as 10mm.

    Lazy or Clever?

    I recently purchased a brand new rollgliss R500 with 450' of static rope. It has a hand crank for lifting. I took off the hand crank and coupled a cordless drill to the gear box. The drill on low speed worked fine for lifting me (180lbs plus gear). The motor did not get hot and I climbed 60' in...
