Retreever

I was interested in this tool the first time I saw it at one of Sherrill's catalogs. I use it sometimes but not very often since I have developed alternatives to its use. It is a bit on the way while climbing since it hangs from the side of the saddle. I noticed that the hook is not strong enough and tends to pull straight and releases the rope that you are trying to retrieve. Also the hook tends to gyrate freely on its axis which makes it a bit tricky to handle and control. A nice tool but I have not been getting the most use out of it for the money paid. Try it first before you buy if you can.
