    Wow I missed out on a good kick starter. Glad to see it was finally produced and looks as good as it first did

    I never really liked my gearpull once I received it. It's very nice in titanium but I like my mega dangler better. Mine is in the junk drawer now

    Wait, wait... I am not getting it.

    Al Effendi is in GA, you're in GA.

    He's looking for a GearPull, you've bought one and found that it's not quite your flavor.

    It's almost like the horse is running away from the water. :eek:

    Trade you some scary knives for it. I'm just East of Atlanta, though I could meet you at GoingGear.

    ...not like I really need an excuse to go there.

    As for Munroe alternatives, I couldn't resist this HK knockoff. It's steel, but for less than the price of a P7, I couldn't pass it up.

    I totally agree. I was very excited to receive my Titanium GearPull but after trying it out I've determined that it's just not for me.

    No, the chain link is not Ti, just the standard steel variant! Titanium would be really cool though, those chain links tend to rust once you remove the grease...

    That's not a unique feature. Marmot, Mountain Hardwear and a few other outdoor apparel companies have incorporated that feature in rain and ski jackets for years.

    TAD stuff is nice but waaaaaaay overpriced. It's basically sold to mall ninjas and people with more money than sense.

    My Munroe Mega arrived today - first impressions: thinner stock than the Gearpull and bottle opener works well. The opening is tighter providing more purchase when clipping to my jeans which I like. The Gearpull just hangs on the pocket really.

    Have now at one point or another owned a Gearpull, Pickpocket, P7, and Mega. Sold the P7 as it was too small, plain, and had me on edge about losing the clip and everything attached to it. Otherwise, I consider the remaining three the ultimate trifecta of danglers.

    Only piece I am still curious about is the Atwood Hangman but that looks designed for a belt loop more than the lip of a pocket. And the UFO looks useful paired with the Mega/Pickpocket, may seek one out down the road.

    Will lastly add that I managed to pick up everything I mentioned above secondhand on various forums over several months, ALL below retail price. A bit of patience goes a long way, and I am glad I waited for the real deals. For those of you avoiding the knock-offs and still on the hunt, do not be discouraged!
