Are they still making these? I'm having hell finding them in stock through any of the online retailers. And don't just give me a link to one of them claiming they are in stock. I've already followed up on most of them.

Just a simple answer will do. This should be a two post thread that should fade into oblivion. I hope they are still making them, I really, really do.

Call Shoreline and ask Tom. He might know the scoop.

I already tried Shoreline and Mountain Tools, and quite a few others. I'll try Climber's Choice.

But when you called Shoreline, did you simply try to order some or did you ask the person helping you if they are still being made and the status of their availability? Those guys are super-helpful - give 'em a call.

I hear the company went out. Shoreline hasn't heard from them in 3 months and Mountain Tools said the company went under.

The guy I spoke to at Mountain Tools said they might end up makeing them.

You can have your peckers swaged if you like the wire loop. BD charges a mother lode for peckers now. 15.95! Luckily I got mine for 9.95.
