I have two Lyon Nylon slings and think they're great. I prefer the extra wearability of Nylon over Dyneema and the width of the slings (18mm) is not too great and the black/red colouring makes identifying your gear easy when sharing with your climbing partners. I think 120cm is probably a better choice overall as it gives more flexibility particularly when anchoring round trees, the rough bark doesn't fluff them up.

I bought a couple of the 240cm slings for setting up top ropes in the sandstone areas south of London. The length is great for ensuring the rope is attached over the edge to reduce wear on the rock and rope. Nylon weighs a bit more than Dyneema, but for setting up anchors this doesn't really matter and the extra strength and heat resistance seem more important. I'd definitely recommend slings over tape as well to avoid the need to tie the end together manually. They're not exactly the prettiest slings in the world, with a dull black colour and thin red lines, but at least they don't show dirt! Overall build quality seems solid, including stitching, so overall great value.

When extending runners or setting precarious belays it's always good to have confidence in your gear and these are truely great slings. Durable and tough, I have used these slings extensively all year and they still look like new - no fluff or wearing. Very impressive!

I bought a couple of 50cm slings to add to my collection and I am very happy with them. They do the job perfectly. I have other stronger slings but will buy these from now on as they are a better thickness (thinner than my other nylon slings) and extremely durable. I prefer having the security nylon and these are the best I have bought! Great value for money.

I bought the slings for setting up slackline. It works were well as this type sling is better suited for the activity.

I Purchased a Selection of Lyon Nylon Sling. I have used them for clipping myself in at the top of sport routes and setting up top ropes. All though they are really plain and dull to look at they are really nice slings to handle, they are a little softer and less rigid than my Beal ones and tend to stay where they are put on boulders, (don't slide around like my Beal ones). They are excellent value for money :-D

I bought 3 x 60cm slings and a 120cm sling a couple of weeks ago and they've really lived up to the test. Excellent for setting up anchors, although the 120 is a tad too small for anchoring of tree trunks, eg. for zip wires. Also, brilliant value for money, much cheaper than other makes for better quality and wear and tear. Brighter colours would be nice, but at this budget price it's more than what you'd expect.

Great for setting up abseils off trees without the worry of cutting. Obviously heavier than Dyneema but better for when weight is not an issue! The 120 mm seems good for small to medium trees. I would go for the largest one if needed for a lot of topping. Can always be doubled up if need be.

This is No 6 for me. The first five are still going strong and show no wear or fluff as yet. They are soft and easy to work with. The black colour is not great, but as I never climb in the dark I can live with it. All in all great, just like the service from Facewest. Many thanks.

I bought the 20cm sling. This sling can be used as a dogbone in a quickdraw, but for this I find it a bit too wide - I prefer dyneema. This sling is perfect for clipping al your quickdraws on to for easy transport. Having them all on one sling makes transferring them to you harness a lot easier also. Small price for a bit of comfort at the crags!
