Well spoken, Brad! Listen well, Greenluck!
Ron is an agent working in collusion with all of the equipment and rope manufacturers. I have been a victim of this man's evil ways. First, he tricked me into buying a Trango Cinch, pointing out that it just had to be better than a Grigri. Then he told me that instead of the Grigri, and the cinch, that I needed an Eddy. But then he pointed out that the Cinch, the Grigri, and the Eddy were all three inferior to the Rig and that I needed the Rig. The man is absolutely EVIL!!!! It took a G.A. (Gear-a-holics Anonymous) meeting and the support of all who were there to keep me from buying most of this other stuff. Now he has implied that I absolutely must have one of those Scarab descending devices. This may call for another trip to the G.A. meetings.
I too have been a victim of the HTP rope scam perpetrated by this man. My HTP isn't even dirty yet and already the pressure is on as I am now in the midst of the 9mm EZBend craze, also a product of this man's cunning. My new 9mm EZBend arrived in the mail yesterday and I pray that I will have the chance to use it before Ron points out that it is already obsolete and that there is some other rope that I need instead.
Exercise caution, Greenluck, and don't ever say that you weren't forewarned!
Now...having said all of that...I think I'm really gonna like this 9mm stuff and I think that you too should get some. Brad...I think you need some too. Help me out Ron, these people need help!
Just picking on you, Ron!
By the way...when are you gonna share some of that kickback money with the rest of us? How much does ON ROPE 1 and PMI pay you anyway?
