Dear Sir or Madam,
my company will launch a -last resort- emergency product some time this year and we’d like an expert opinion. Our web address is at http://www.teklabs.co.uk/page2.html
In brief, we’re using bi-stable reeled composite technology to make an extension pole with a a claw of sorts at the extreme end. In layman’s terms, it’s a 20’ultralight pole that rolls up to quite a small package and weighs about 200 grams, without the claw.
When a climber is faced with a situation where the next gripspace is a lot further up than anticipated or a climbing partner gets in trouble far out of arms reach, we couldn’t think of any better equipment to use.
I’d appreciate any guidance you may have and look forward to your reply.
