I have played with many knots, and everytime I tie a strait up VT I get a twisty rope. I currently us the Michoucan (I know thats knot spelled right). It basicly has a half hitch at the bottom which seems to stop the twisting.
You are absolutely right about the write offs... Thats how I get all my toys for climbing, confince the wife "we can write it off". :laugh::walking:

It looks like you can buy the kit to convert 2 CMI acsencers here

But then they say they are out of production here

And if you are an Ebayer

Both climbing systems are great. Ddrt started our industry and was used for many many years by a lot of people. Its now just been a couple years since SRT (work positioning) has really taken off. Now with your mar bars I hope you are backing them up properly. If done right the system works great. I dont use it very often because I climb SRT most of the time now.
