Love it!

By Linda

from Yosemite National Park, California, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Rotor Swivel:

I bought this swivel while expanding my big wall gear collection and racking up for a big season in Yosemite. In just a matter of months this swivel suspended and managed loads between 100 - 300 lbs on Yosemite classics including Lurking Fear on El Capitan, Leaning Tower and Washington's Column. A partner and I even attempted Mescalito, a longer and much more technical route on El Capitan. This route requires more food, water and gear. Our loads estimating to about 300lbs. Although my partner and I eventually buckled under the weight of hauling- this swivel never wavered! With so many things to occupy my mind on the wall, the security and manageability of my bags never became a concern on the ocean of granite that is Yosemite Valley! Although it's only six months old, it's been the center piece of my big wall bag set up on 5 walls. It remains as durable and smooth as ever and has stood the test of use.

Gave out in just over a year

By REbecca

from Santa Monica, CA, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Rotor Swivel:

The swivel worked great for a year, holding my weight and spinning smootly and without hitches. Sadly, it gave up just a couple of months after the one year warranty period had elapsed. There is a lot of crunchy friction in the swivel now, and it is at an angle, and completely unusable and untrustworthy. I expected better - and have had swivels that have lasted years.

      Comments about Black Diamond Rotor Swivel:

      I use this product on my climbing saddle for technical Ariel Arborism in DRT (double-rope technique). This product is essential when twisting & turning & even working laterally or partially inverted when limb walking in high trees. Relatively light in weight & colored in orange & black (orange to attach to carabiner).

      This swivel is very well made. It functions so smoothly. BD has engineered this unit to function with no noticeable friction.

      Perfection

      By Late

      Comments about Black Diamond Rotor Swivel:

      No big wall, just a ceiling at home. Two Autistic boys swinging from a rope swing central mounting point to help with sensory and vestibular issues. Thanks for a perfect piece of equipment. If you only knew the peace and pleasure your equipment provides...

      Great Product

      By Brad

      from Birmingham, AL, USA

      Comments about Black Diamond Rotor Swivel:

      This is an excellent swivel and the best priced one I could find on the market. The 3 I bought have been in daily use for over a month now and have not given me any problems.

        • Aid

        Comments about Black Diamond Rotor Swivel:

        I use this to haul my half dome haul bag up the walls in Zion and Yosemite, and it does exactly what you think it would do, and has done a perfect job from the first time I hooked it up, its also less expensive than its competitors. If you need a swivel, there is no competition in my mind, go with the BD rotor swivel.
