The Rope Logic Thunder Sling is a simple, robust aerial friction brake with no moving parts and super strong construction, and is now easy to retrieve. Set it up like you would a friction saver and retrieve it normally. Use climber set friction to lower loads up to 500 lbs with a KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) approach. The sling has 4 feet of usable length, plus the length of the rings.
