Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpensive, high quality product, good performance, very light. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Descender I ordered this because I saw a fireman exibition and this is what they used to rescue a guy from a building so I figured it must be pretty good.

It's hard to describe but it just feels very predictable.
