Topic - Petzl Scorpio - Via Ferrata

wilf1234 - on 14 Jan 2014
Hi Guys

I was looking at buying a couple of Petzl Scorpio Via Ferrata rigs from Go Outdoors.

However I've just picked up a Cicerone guide and there is a comment in there that this rig should be avoided due to the 'reliance on stich webbing which progressively tears during a fall'.

I think this guide was written in 2009 but googling around, it seems that the Scorpio was recalled by Petzl back in 2011 - does this mean that the current batch on sale is OK, or should i avoid it,despite it being an absolute bargain (they've price matched it for me, and knocked off 10%, so they are 42!!!)

cheers for the help
