This little guy packs a punch!

3 July 2016
I bought the basic instead of the usual ascension to put in my harness as I was looking to downsize my whole kit. My main concern was the missing handle but the new design of the basic makes it very comfortable to grip and I haven't missed the handle one bit. I've done a lot of climbing with it and don't regret getting it at all.
