We just added this to our lache gauntlet and it brings a whole new challenge in determining how and where to place your hands and move your head when lache'ing to the next obstacle. It is one of the few tools that make you think of an exit strategy. With most obstacles, you only need to focus on how-to land, but this demands additional thought in that it blocks your vision and must be manipulated in order to locate your next obstacle when in a series. Great design Atomik! seems so simple but adds so many challenges when in a series!
