If you really like kinked, twisted beyond repair ropes at hanging belays with haul bags attached to the end of them, then you should not buy this thing. On the other hand, if you'd rather spend your time climbing than untangling a rat's nest of twisted static line, then this is just the ticket.
Great mutli purpose rotor, good for all the uses listed below as well as a great tool for keeping you slack line straight for those that have a tough time setting up a legit slack line(is that an oxymoron?).
Yep it works and works well. I have only used it twice so not sure on how it works over time, but so far pretty good. I like that my rope no longer gets all wound up.
It has a smooth turning action and works very well. We use it for climbing and some performance rope art we do. It has exceeded our expectations and as stated, costs much less that petzl!
Great tool, buy one. Even when climbing with a pack I attach this to the top handle strap, when I need to drop the pack for a hard pitch, I am set.
If you are contemplating getting the Black Diamond Rotor swivel or not for hauling the answer is yes. Its advantages far out-weight its disadvantages---if it even has any.
It works, and it's 2/3s the price of the Petzl Swivel.
