There's nothing wrong with the sling on that old rigid stem Friend. The problem is that none of the usual outlets will sew neat little runners on them because they're old and afraid of exposing themselves to the liability.

i have sent quite a few old rigids to yates for re-slinging and they haven't ever denied my request.

Clearly, slim, you haven't read the fine print on the Yates Gear home page, as it clearly states:

Resling Cams:
Important notes - we will no longer be able to resling cams older than 10 years. Also, we do not do Tricams.

I'd bet a dollar to a donut that that ratty old rigid stem Friend wouldn't get reslung by Yates.

Nice try.
