Pongoose: Most advanced and expensive on the market

The Pongoose is the most advanced and expensive (97 Euro excluding shipping) clip stick out there. Beside putting up the quickdraws and also putting in the rope it can actually retrieve quickdraws as well as attach a brush and a camera on it. The collapsed length is just 720 mm and you can clip it in to your harness if you need it higher up. The extended length is 2.85 m.

The big question is of course if it is worth it in comparison to a free natural version or the less advanced and expensive stick clip on the market?

Having tested it, we can say that it is marginally better then the others on the market. You will probably save some time putting up and down quick draws but it is also personal which clip stick works best. Have you never used a clip stick but plans to buy one, this should be your best option. On the other hand, if you already have one and have learnt it's tricks, the benefits does not seem to be so big beside the "plastic" ones often get destroyed pretty fast.

The price is outrageous.  You can put up draws and remove them, and clip the rope with any stick. No gizmos needed. Some areas makes sense to have a pole (Red River Gorge), but you still don't need to put anything on the end.
