Great for Top-Rope; Not for TradI originally purchased this protector so I could ensure my trad anchors were as safe as possible; making sure that not even my static ropes (because that is the only type of rope this is good for) were protected from sharp edges. However, in practice the Protec was bulky and annoying on my gear sling when leading as it likes to stay in a straight line even when not in use. Now I just use it when I'm setting up a top rope anchor, but practically this is the only time the Protec is useful anyway. When you're trad climbing the frequency of falling on your system is very low; so you don't really need to protect static lines. However when top roping on a climb right near your skill level protecting your static lines from edges pays dividends on the life of your gear by the end of a couple full days of top roping
