No more tristed rope
I had been using the Sky Genie cylinder that I bought 15 years ago and was always frustrated by the twisting of the rope right in front of my face while trying to wash a window halfway down the rope on a ledge. When stepping on a ledge the rope becomes relaxed but bunches up in front of me because of the "curling" action on the rope being subjected to a cylinder while under tension. None of that exist with this. Very easy to use with the instructions on how to thread the rope right on the device itself. An expensive investment but quite proud to own it. Interestingly enough, the Sky Genie sold for about $100 15 years ago. I noticed its about the same price as this now. Yow can control the speed of the descent better with the Sky Genie.
