I thought the GrandWall uAscend was supposed to be their take on the out-of-production USHBA Ascender?

First impressions are interesting. It feeds like a dream and bites down hard like it's supposed to. It does however seem very slippery and a little too willing to go back down the rope when unweighted. Doesn't seem efficient enough to be used as an ascender like a toothed device.

Look up the CAMP Lift my friend,..virtually the same exact design.
