Doesn't weigh much but is so ineffective that you'll want to fling it into the sea.by anonymous on 05/4/2017
The Feather's just one of those pieces that's been made so light that it's not really very good at what it's intended for any more.
Even for alpinists who have to be as light as possible to increase their chances of survival, but only for routes where all the nut placements are poor as the time it adds to retrieving wires would surely outweigh the weight saving.
I bought this as an upgrade to my old Wild Country Pro Key, which looks exactly the same but is thicker and made from steel rather than aluminium, so is much heavier. I gave my old WC one to a friend.
I wanted to love it but after a few years of dealing with the negative aspects of the Feather and taking ages to get gear out when seconding I found a Pro Key on a ledge mid-route and imnmediately started using it instead. It's so much more effective- some pieces of gear just need to be a bit heavy.
