What does that mean? I think it means "descender", from what I can tell... I'm good with that. We call them multicenders, but they don't do jack as far as ascending goes - that's what makes them great.
the akimbos major flaw for sure. im working on trying to figure out why its so bad in that regard when other devices dont have as much of an issue.Sorry, but I just don't like the Akimbo. Once that it gets a little pitch on it, it locks up on me.
Even when just using it as a lanyard.
