This is not an instructable. It is an Advertisement.

awesome! Let me know when the kickstarter campaign begins, I'll definitely support.

it is a invention ...

Is there somewhere I can get updates on this or other awesome ideas you're coming up with? I am pretty excited to see how this turns out.

I have been using the rope wrench for the past 2 years. Would you say the feel is comparible overall?

Yes, there is much less friction on ascent. The descent is not as intuitive as a hitch but easily figured out with a bit of practice. It is heavier and a bit more kinky than a hitch and rw. Hopefully we cn slim it down without cprising safety. It does the same job as an rw. The biggest advantage is the frictionless ascent

When will I be able to get this? I can not wait to try it out.
