Notch Ambassador Krista Strating demonstrates the differences between the original Rope Runner and the Notch Rope Runner Pro.
- Bird has smoother edges (compared to original).
- Rope Runner Pro features a center attachment to your chest harness, vs loading from the side
- Rope Runner Pro Midline attachable as 1 piece vs breaks apart (risking dropping pieces).
- Now you can customize your upper friction bollard based on your climbing set up and rope.
These changes make it less intimidating to go from rope wrench to using a mechanical device, but as with all new climbing setups, go low and slow and practice.
