Pros/cons?

I posted in the For Sale section "Wanted to buy ... jumars ..." and someone replied with these industrial looking things.

They are very similar to Jumars. They are good ascenders and should do the job for you.

The CMI's are the closest thing to a Jumar that are not labeled Jumar.  If they haven't been dropped or otherwise damaged they'll work as good as Jumars.

edit: wow, I just looked up a price of those CMI's new. Whew. Hey, where did Jumar branded ascenders go off to? They don't appear to be for sale anywhere.
Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
