/ Wild Country Rock replacements
The rating for Rock 09 is still 12KN (grey sheath) whereas Rocks 10-14 are now rated at 10KN (black sheath).
Have I received a bad batch or are Rocks now weaker than they were?
They were recalled because they were too strong.
"In a very small number of cases the failure load was below the units rated strength and in some cases below 7kN; a peak load that can be realistically achieved during a fall." (From 'Voluntary Recall Classic and Anodised Rocks Issued 07102013')
It was a joke.
