As always Nick, a fine choice of image for the homepage. My PR agent will be in touch to discuss legal proceedings. On a more serious note, if anyone has any further questions regarding any of the products feel free to post them up here. We do all we can to get the information across in the interviews, but there's always something that we miss. In fact, after the amount of coffee I drank throughout the show I'm surprised I managed to keep it together enough to ask even a single vaguely coherent question! We'll let you be the judge anyhow. Enjoy! p.s. god bless you Stevie Haston...
Lovin' that thumbnail Rob! :)

Unless I've missed something, does the revo have a function for locking off deliberately, as gri-gri's do, for use when dogging a sport climb? One of the nice things about a grigri is that when your partner says "take" you can lock off, which locks the device and then you only need to keep a grip on the rope, without actively locking off. Also, it doesn't look like it can be used for abseiling? Not quite sure what its target market is? Newbie onsight sport climbers?

agree re-deliberately locking off is a good question, maybe WC will do a full promo video addressing some of these questions ? if it can used to lower it can be used to ab on (single rope obvs) I'd imagine it's aimed at not dropping people when sports climbing!

The revo looks interesting for self belaying, was this discussed? If im correct a silent partner also uses an inertia wheel, but this is much cheaper and looks a lot less clunky.
