The Black Diamond Nylon Sewn Runner is an excellent choice for those budget conscious climbers who would prefer to save their money to buy an extra can of beans or an ice cream cone. Even for the average climber it can be nice to have one or two Nylon sewn runners in the rack, if nothing else than to have a nice sling to rack the gear on for the hike down. This sling performs the same as the other Nylon sewn runner we tested, but costs a fair bit less, and so is the obvious choice for purchase.
Black Diamonds nylon slings will best serve the recreational trad climber who needs their slings to do it all: extending gear placements, rigging anchors, backing up rappels, and slinging chocks and chickenheads are all practical applications.
