I was into Wesspur yesterday and picked up one of the new Gyro's from Camp. It looked really useful, especially if we move more to two rope systems for some climbing. I really like that the swivels themselves are stainless steel instead of aluminium like the ZigZag. I know that most aluminium alloys are quite strong but they are also soft and more easily nicked or bent. One thing that surprised me when I saw the device in person was how small it actually was (photo). Online in its various pictures, I had the impressin it would be about twice the size it turned out to be. Nevertheless it is rated, with ample reserve strength. And for hiking any distance for rec climbing, the smaller and more easily carried the better. It is shocking how even a minimal amount of gear in a backpack can get heavier and heavier as a hike wears on, and of course some of us are not so young any more. Anyway, I am looking forward to the weather clearing and playing with this thing a bit. I think I will put it straight onto my rope bridge to start with.
