/ AustriAlpin Rockit Wire
Thinking of getting a couple of these for racking my wires; sick of the narrow bottomed wire-gates I currently have; these look really good and pretty cheap:
Anyone tried their kit/used their stuff much? - not necessarily bothered about quality of racking krabs but just out of interest for future knowledge.
They look ideal for racking; they don't seem like they'd be as prone to spitting my wires down the crag ;)
Could do with a couple more actually, thanks for the link :)
FWIW I don't think the Rockit would be a particularly good racking krab as it still has relatively 'sharp' corners. Have you considers BD Oval Wires?
Could be tempted to pick a couple up.

Don't blame the carabiner, you slung the whole lot down, kran and all! It was me that dropped two of your wires ;-)
There were many factors: The krab being one; plus there was that monstrous wind that could easily dislodge a rack of wires from one's hand- you were lucky to be sheltered from it down there....;)
On a serious note; those particular wire gates don't work for racking- back to solid gates or some BD Ovals!
I was more lucky they didn't come down far enough to hit me! ;-)
DMM also do solid gate ovals.

Better luck next time ;)
Thanks, Dave; I'll give them a look!
