CMI "Ultrascender"

These are the only Ascenders I ever used and owned. Mine are about five years old and still in very good shape. They are reliable, I trust them with my life (literally). It took a few climbs to learn to used them properly and efficiently until I figured out the proper size of the straps to use with them. I do not climb very tall trees so I do not use them that frequently but they are very efficient in tall trees. I have never had problems with them coming off the lines suddenly but have read some info on that topic caused by possible operator error. I think they are a good tool to have in the arsenal of climbing gear we all accumulate as we progress in climbing experience.
