Eccentric Cam Foot Ascenders

I have several eccentric cam foot ascenders that can be used in ropewalking and other systems. Personally, I don't like any of them, preferring to float a Gibbs for ropewalking and not needing a foot ascender when forced to Frog. I also have some commercial and home-made Mar-Bars, but I rarely inchworm.
