I received two lanyards from Beal for review - a Dynadouble Clip and a Dynaclip, says Jack Geldard. That's right, the Dynadoubleclip has two clip in points and the Dyna clip has one.

"...If you are doing a lot of multipitch sport routes or even canyoning, then these could be a good bet for quick and simple attachment..."
The lanyards obviously do exactly what they are supposed to, they attach you to belay points. The Dynadouble clip has one lanyard at a length of 40cm and one at 70cm, allowing you to clip in to staggered bolts at a bolt belay.
The fact that the lanyards are made from rope adds a small element of stretch to the system that you don't get with a sling.
The lanyards are well made, of a well thought out length and are very strong.
If you are doing a lot of multipitch sport routes or even canyoning, then these could be a good bet for quick and simple attachment.
If you mainly climb UK sport and trad I would say they are a rather specialist investment and you might be better purchasing some slings or learning how to build a belay with the 60m rope you have with you.
The performance specs are below:
Specifications of the Dynaclips
UKC Gear, Mar 2010
A good but specialist bit of kit. Multipitch sport or canyoning fits well with these.
PRICE: For the single Dynaclip, £17.50 (40cm) and £19.00 (75cm). For the Dyna Double Clip, £24.00
