The FRANKEN STICK is the newest 'twist' on the fiddle stick. Made from our custom extruded and thermoformed Polycarbonate (Lexan) plastic. When the rappel rope is weighted the FRANKEN STICK is highly resistant to pull out. With 100 lbs of rappeller weight on the rope, it takes more than 400 lbs of force to dislodge it! Yet the FRANKEN STICK releases 'normally' once weight is off the rope. Lab testing is complete and we have begun field testing... Coming to canyonwerks.com soon!
