    Wow beautiful Jaime, I am so stoked to try this thing out! I haven't logged on in ages (been absolutely slammed with work), but I happen to log in 4 hours after you posted this!! Whatever I have to do to try this thing out I will! After talking briefly with Claasen at Jambo I've been drooling to see it, looks beautiful.

    I second that this is a work of art, I don't have an artistic bone in my body so just shot for functionality. Looks like you got em both nailed!!

    Looks sweet. I won't volunteer to test it though. I'm not quite ready for that yet. Remember I was on a taught line up till a little over a year ago. Still a bit behind the new age. I'm glad there are climbers out there who can think this stuff up and bring it to life.

    A cool looking work of art that seems very compact. Much thought and many hours work has obviously went into it's design and building. I'd be happy to to be on the GP team as well
