Anyone got any experience of using the latest available jumars from Petzl & B.D. I'm looking to use one or the other on a forthcoming Ama Dablam trip where there'll be lots of jumaring on fixed rope but its not exactly big eall stuff. The Petzl looks lighter and simpler to use but anyone got any feedback?
In reply to steveB: Petzl one is pretty much standard kit, tried and tested all over the world and does what it says on the tin. I've used them for years and they've always worked how they're supposed to.
In reply to steveB: it's a trip I'm seriously looking at in the next year or so. I've been reading everything on Tim mosedale's website about ama dablam and everest. he recommends petzl as BD can freeze up. you should definitely check out his website - I've found it interesting and v useful.
