I don't use a daisy- don't own one, but I've got something like it- instead of a single loop connected by bar tacks I have a bunch of full-strength dyneema loops (made from BW Titan runner material) connected together- serves a similar function as the daisy in that it's length-adjustable, without the potential for bar-tack blowout. http://www.rockclimbingtools.com/...CHAIN-p/bw763949.htm

This and slings are a poor substitute for clipping a clove or a figure-8 in with the rope, but are great (and sometimes situationally useful) ways to be redundant- usually I have two points of connection to the rock at any given time I'm not on belay, simply because I'm unabashed in my paranoia and more gear is cheap.
