    Heads UP!

    Reports have been filtering in that the Canyon Lux rope does not work for Toggle-devices. The rope is soft and apparently cinches around the stick very tightly, and it is very difficult to impossible to get the stick to release. The FiddleStick and Smooth Operator were developed using much stiffer ropes, and provide the appropriate range of friction using those stiffer ropes.
