Thanks for adding the image Tom! I get lazy with that sort of thing. And I find it difficult to get good images. I think I may need some lessons on that. Or at the very least putting effort into a decent set up ahead of time. Instead I wait til I need the pics then fumble around until I am tired of it and just settle for what I got.
Only took me an hour to figure out how to get a decent picture of Lockdown Luster...
Well version 4 of the Sqwurel is finally here. I just cannot stop always trying to improve or reinvent the wheel. It may seem a little crazy but sometimes all that obsessing brings some good stuff to the world......... enter Sqwurel V4!
Version 4 of the SQWUREL has been improved adding a few valuable features, all packed into the same small form factor of the Sqwurel 3. Canyoneers on the lighter side will appreciate the modified throat geometry that now offers smooth rappeling during double rope rappels (even those of us who are not so small, or light will have a much-improved double rope experience with version 4). The carabiner hole has been enlarged slightly to accommodate larger carabiners while at the same time the groove that holds the O-ring has been made tighter, so the O-ring now grabs the carabiner a little tighter than it used to (a little bit of the best of both worlds here). The behemoth tab has been extended to offer a more secure hold of the rope while also adding a progress capture option to tighten guided rappel lines. Also added are 4 rapid wrenches of 11mm, 12mm, 13mm and 14mm. The rapid wrenches allow tightening and loosening stubborn rapids that are too tight for bare hands.
Colors are back!! I was able to source anodizing at a reasonable cost. Many people asked for colors to come back and here they are! FYI the Honey Badger color is difficult to photograph since how it looks depends on the light it is on. I direct sunlight it takes on a silver look and looks close to raw aluminum but in lower light like in the shade, heavy cloud cover or indoors it is a subdued gold color. The color shifting appearance of Honey Badger makes it a very interesting color but is difficult to photograph.
To help show some of the changes / upgrades as compared to version 3, check out this video
Also attached here is an image showing the colors now available.
