LOVE the leopard print!
Official shipdate projected as Sept 10. My expectation is to have my hands on the cargo Oct 1st... plus or minus a couple days.
I have an official projected delivery date for packs and rope bags of October 8th.
We expect to deliver good to The Desert Rat, Adventure Plus and Zion Adventure Company on that date, and arrive back at the shop (after a long day) with enough stuff to ship backorders and Store orders on October 9th.
Q: I received the rope silos today. Neither bag has a tie in at the bottom inside of the bag for the rope. Is that designed that way? I know I can tie it in to the bottom of the bag on the outside, but was assuming there was one on the inside as well. Please explain.
A: I have dropped the inside-tie-point. As much as I feel inflicting my viewpoint on the canyoneering community is unwise, in this case...
In my group, we have had several near misses that resulted from people claiming the bottom of the rope is tied into the bag when it is not. Being able to confirm attachment of the rope to the bag is desirable, therefore I have eliminated the inside tie point so that people will be "encouraged" to use the bottom hole and outside tie point.
Originally this came from sharing ropes when I was guiding. Eventually the norm became to always use the outside tie point after several bags were lost. We have had instances out in the wild where the bag hit the ground and the rope was assumed to reach. And this was incorrect. No major self-rescue events due to good luck.
Use the outside tie point. I think you will come to the conclusion that this is best practice. Personally I use a triple clove hitch on the bottom cross strap as the knot, which seems to hold well. Lesser-complexity knots tend to come undone.
Scuttlebutts are welded for us at a Jack's in Aztec New Mexico. I failed to keep on top of this product because we have a lot of stuff going on, so we ran out. Jack's has scheduled us for shipment about Nov 1st, so we may be out until then. They have sometimes squeezed us in ahead of schedule, but we will see. They are good at keeping to their schedule.
As it worked out... the Delivery date is Wednesday Oct 10. We will be shipping on Oct 11th and 12th. Thanks to everyone for your patience and for your pre-orders, which helped raise the funds to get the stuff in with only modest borrowing.
Tell me you're getting free (no interest) points/miles for that "modest borrowing." If that's not your game, I'll partially finance your next order.

New / Old Canyon Fire Rope colors for 2020
Big Call Out to "John" for letting me know that Canyon Fire had fallen out of the CUSA store. WTF?
New Dry Ropebag for 200' Canyon Fire... of course, the first little batch came out too small for that, so they are on sale.
SECO? Is that an acronym?
I must have missed the last update. Fiddlestick with a dimple now?
Excited to check out this SECO-190. Had a 150' rope that needed a home. Ordered!
And, while we are at it...
Revised ShuffleButt with PVC Leg Loop covers while the rest is Cordura. Soooooo much easier to sew, lasts somewhat better.
Purple and Gold, just came in the door.
and... New Seco-200 Rope Bag, big enough to hold a 210' Canyon Fire
