Simply the best cambium saver period

Simply the best cambium saver, period. Don't waste you money on the metal conduit type savers. I've owned my for years and it looks brand new. A friend had to replace is metal conduit type saver after less than 1 year. Works well in tighter crotches.

Nice Sleeve.

This is my first friction saver and overall I'm satisfied. I would like to try a conduit sleeve later on but for now this one works just fine.

Form and function

It's simple. It works. It's light. Granted they get a tad squishy on a rainy day. But you can always 1. reform it or 2. Stay home that day and drink copious amounts of cappucino and write gear reviews till the rain lets up. Hard to beat this old favorite.

No sap since!

This has saved my ropes from any more sap encounters! I don't climb without it; around my neck of the woods (Lake Tahoe) there are only coniferous trees with terrible sap, so this has been a life saver and I think it is the best bang for the buck. I have never really have had any trouble with it either! A must have for your pack of gear!

Leather Sleeve - if you only have one, this is it.

After reading the two previous reviews. it's all Yes's.



All I can add is, when both it and the line get wet, it does not glide nearly as well. More than once I have started a climb and then bagged the whole thing for a different tree because of the resistance.



Other than wet weather, this thing rocks. Easy and fun.
