      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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!

Recommended Posts

I have some cams etc...that I would like to have slings replaced on. I would also like to get some custom slings made. Anyone know of a good shop that they use?

If you were down in the Portland area, I would say Climb Max. They do a good job, from everyone that I have heard down here. I was planning on getting some of my metolius TCUs reslung soon, and if I don't drop them at the plant on a trip down to Smith, I will probably go to Climb Max.

BD replaced some for me, but will ONLY do them for BD cams and will only replace it with the type of sling that was originally on the cam.

BD will hook you up! They did my entire rack (slings and cam pulls) for free! If you want to change the length they will do it for you also.

You can get them done in Squamish too, BD or Wild Country cams. Nothing custom though, other than length...

Replaced some slings recently on a couple of TCUs and a BD #3 for me. Fantastic job. Cheap, too.

Would anybody on the planet do this forme:

 

I like it when the cams have a doulbed length sewn sling so you can have the sewn sling extended or short.

I prefer wc rigid friends. Every comapny tells me that the hole on the wc cams is to small to accomadate the doulbed sling feature. But now with the super skinny mammut slings, it would be possilbe. Am I just a few years to early for this? and does mammut have a monoply on the razor skinny spectra slings?

btw mt.tools has done good work for me in the past.

Mammut doesn't have a monopoly per say, but the method in which they produce the slings kinda creates one... they actually weave the sling wider at specific points (12", 24", and 48" etc.) to allow for the stitching/bar tacks... that is to say one can't just whack off a specific length and sew it together. You might be able to purchase 24" runners from mammut unsewn and then get mammut (or someone else… I’m willing to bet Metolius would do it for you… let me know if you need a contact name) to sew what you are describing. I do believe the mammut rep posts on the page semi regularly (at least that is his avatar); perhaps you should pm him. Something I do often to get around this is to girth hitch 12" runners to the sewn runner on the cam... just clip the appropriate length and run... make sense? Hope this helps!
