Comments about Black Diamond nForce Ascender:

Bought this for canyoneering in southern Utah. Another piece of essential gear added to the quiver, hope I never have to use it.

Comments about Black Diamond nForce Ascender:

I have a right-hand one. This works great on big rappels without a climb out. Also can be used in 3-1 haul system and self-rescue. Have used this on wet ropes in rain (but not ice or snow) still grabs! Easy on and off with one hand, also like how a push up the line takes teeth off automatically. Have not had a problem with it popping off, although I always have a biner through top hole. Best ascender in my opinion on market. Heavier than some but has huge hand area if you are using gloves. You can also operate trigger without sticking your finger through hole if using thicker gloves.

      Comments about Black Diamond nForce Ascender:

      Ok. I really tested this ascender with the Petzl and NForce won mainly because it can accommodate a big mitten in winter conditions. I bought both but returned the Petzl. The NForce slid up the rope wonderfully and when the release was activated it provided good descending capabilities. The NForce held my full weight when ascending without any hint of slippage. My only complaint was the descending "knob" which could be operated nominally with the mittened hand but is probably better operated with a glove. I may have to put a lighter glove on my right hand when descendinig the fixed lines on Denali this spring.

      When you compare this side by side with other ascenders you soon forget the difference in weight and price.
