14 years without needing a redesign and still selling well is pretty impressive - a testament to what a bloody good bit of engineering the originals are. I was using some of mine last night sport climbing for the first time in some months and they really are superb krabs. What other products have remained unchanged for that long? My partner last night was wearing Sportiva Mythos - I think that model is now 20 years old.
