I have to replace the clutch every 9-10 months. I do a LOT of end weight reduction pruning and getting to the ends of silver maples I use my lanyard in an SRT cofiguration to help out my horrible rope angles. I’m assuming that puts more wear on it than usual. Also the angle against the clutch in standard lanyard configuration would apply friction/wear against the clutch than on the LJ. That is a full assumption based off what seems to make sense to me.Is the clutch like the Lockjack clutch? I can see a LJ clutch wearing out after a couple years and running over miles of rope, but I’d expect on a lanyard it’d last for ages.
I think that was part of what made the Trango Cinch such a good lanyard adjuster but a mediocre belay device after it wears a little. Just hard to get similar heat and friction from a lanyard compared to belaying and descending.
If you're likin it on Tritech you're about to be blown away when you start messing around with others! IMO after lots of experimenting with rope choice Tritech was one of the worst (all kernmantles I tried were bad comparatively).At the moment I'm using tri tec. About to start experimenting with different ropes
Good addition! Looks like smooth as butter loosening but more effort/friction when taking up slack compared to the other mechanicals. Have never tried a uni but this looks pretty slick. Wire core friendly?Throw the hipster in that debate! I'm loving it! So simple and works exactly as I wasn't it to
