      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Like he says, doesn't seem like an issue most of the time, only with smaller ropes. Though if you're using smaller ropes they would often be doubles which would prevent the flip he's describing. Still, I use a MegaJul all the time and have noticed that skinny ropes can slide through in certain situations such as rappels. I usually backup the raps with a prusik on skinny ropes in the alpine. They do sell a MicroJul for smaller diameter ropes which would be the ticket, especially if you were going to use a single half rope on a climb to save weight.
