I was a little apprehensive to buy this at first. I've been climbing DdRT with rope hitches for 16 years. I was not sure I'd like the switch over to mechanical but this Spiderjack3 is one smooth operating device. A little getting used to but everything you hate about DdRT is out the window with this. Can't wait for the twin line rope guide to come out. This thing will even be smoother!

The SpiderJack 3 does everything it demonstrates in the product video. I was skeptic to spend this kind of money, but it is well worth it, and it will save money on split tails in the long run as well. Slack tending is a real time saver, this makes limb walking sooo much easier. The device is smooth, ergonomic, and easy to learn. The locking feature of the device is great when you need to maintain position to work. I thought the device was a lot bigger, but the handle and thumb break fits well in my hand. I have medium to large hands, as far as glove size goes for a point of reference, overall very comfortable. Descent is very smooth, and easy to control. I have used about every hitch, pulley, and device combo I can think of, and by far this is the most productive for my style of climbing. If you want something more traditional you may want to look elsewhere. Overall, to sum it up very productive, and easy to use!
I called in regards to asking questions about this product, and also an ordering mistake I made. I have to say the customer service at TreeStuff is AWESOME! Thanks for the help!
1 bad thing - 12/03/2016
Reviewer: Johnny misita
I think it's the best thing ever, however the one flaw is the top hole with the rubber o-ring. The o ring fell out the first time I used it and the shape of the metal is horrible for carribiners. It has ruined 3 carabiners. Other then that I really like how it works
Intuative and Innovative - 11/13/2016

Intuative: The Spiderjack 3 is easy for an experienced Ddrt climber to work with. The setup is reasonably foolproof and the operation is simple to grasp. The device tends slack with one hand operation making your climb more energy efficient and on descent runs smooth and as fast as you prefer.
Innovative: Many of the previous issues with the SJ 2 have been well addressed. Descending against your rope no longer requires the special handle. Its built with a pulley under the handle preventing the rope from contacting. The locking feature further eliminates the device from eating your slack at altitude by locking the cam and making work positioning easier. The device is a good buy if an experienced climber is looking to go mechanical. There is nothing smoother, safer, and as well thought out on the market today.
