trying to wrap my head around the nuances of all the bends. Tip bent for corners, ass bent to match tip, and the bottom is bent to increase camming action and clearance?

Looks like nice work. Where would big wallin be without machinists?

Bryan whipped out a prototype of this when I last saw him. If I recall his description, the bends are for cleaning and the bend behind the beak is also for placing without a chisel in tight corners. One evolved piece of gear for sure. As long as there are left and right versions, I would love to see the design include a cant for blade camming. OK, I'll shut up.

With #3 cable. Gotta love that. What's with the industry's proliferance of #2 cable?

Sweet gear.
Say no to limbers, excavators and retro-bolters. No matter how much he smiles.

Mineral Boy IS a scientist. He knows Wall climbing to a T.
Tomahawks will be a go to piece, I think, in many instances.
Big props.

placed one or two this past weekend on the A3 corner of Wet Denim Daydream.  It was bad ass.  It was a bottomed out placement, almost a seam but a little deeper than a seam.  I first wedged it into the bottom portion of the V-slot - ish placement, then hammered it in. similar to a pecker, when hammered in, the bottom edge butted up against the crack, the top edge was both driven and hooking.  it was bomber.  Bounced it, jumped on it, weighted it, stepped up high on it placed a pecker from the top of it.  Then i reached down, and pulled it out with my hands, with  very little effort! HAH! 


it was awesome.  I loved every minute of it.  I almost cleaned the pitch and lead it again in the morning for the hell of it.

"Machinist to the rock stars" as Fish has said.

Hoi:  Great to hear it!  You got to see how securely they place but the hidden feature is that they clean super easy too (not when you don't want 'em to though)!

Bryan getting whacked:

Technically it's "gold".  I liked the straight "yellow" version better.  I've got a "carolina blue" and a "yellow haze" left over too.  Both larges.
