Hi Folks, new climber here.

It took me some digging to find a supplier of the proper kind of supplies for putting together friction savers here in Canada so I thought I'd post it here. Most suppliers I could find only carried the poly products.

I was able to source the proper materials from from Torbram Electric Supply. See www.torbramelectric.com for locations.

LT 3/4 3/4" Flexible Metallic L/T Conduit - My price today was $6/meter. The branding on the conduit is "International Hose Co." and I'm going to approximate it has a 5" bend radius under load.
WILT180 75 Windsor 3/4" Straight L/T Conn Malleable - My price today was $4.77/piece. This is a large connector that contains the "ground cone" that is used for abrasion reduction.

The pieces I purchased look identical to those pictured here: www.flickr.com/photos/eriebuoy/sets/72157594324419552/

I got this link from an old post on this forum and I thank eriebuoy for it.
