It's been a strange month here at Skyland, we had the explosion of the Petzl Zigzag going on sale, the orders were flying in much so that we couldn't fulfill demand because of the slow release of the product from Petzl.
And then bang! An accident occurs from a climber in Germany and the Zigzag gets recalled, this is the first dealings we have had with a recall and we have to say Lyon Equipment and Petzl have been exemplary in dealing with the returns. They have made it easy for the customers and also the dealers (ourselves).
We hope to be able to bring the Zigzag Mark 2 to you in January 2014 which we are sure will be once again a fantastic tool but just that bit stronger where it failed. Our findings of the Zigzag where excellent, we ran it on Marlow 13mm rope and the smoothness when descending and the ease of ascending made it a winner with us and I personally wouldn't have gone back to my prussik loop...
May will be the month that we add a ROPE ACCESS category to the top of the front page. It will have every product on one page which can be filtered out to specific items. We are mainly an arb company so we don't want rope access buyers trawling through the site coming across chainsaws and the like, it will only get you frustrated and end up leaving the site. We want to make the shopping experience a quick and easy one as we know time is of very little these days.
We are adding new products all the time and here is a small list of some of the new products
