    Has anybody gotten a chance to ride on the Commander 118 or 124 yet? Curious how it compares to the Wildcat in the wild, especially given that the Commanders seem to be a bit lighter.

    Thanks. Yea soft snow is a tough one for arrest of a partner. Knots in the rope might help, as might having some more room between the two (longer time to arrest the fall).

    Apparently the U springs wear down your heel insert faster and have less consistent release characteristics over time.
