Looking for little advice or recommendations. Do any of you use a slinger type leash like this one?

Or do most of you prefer something else, like a more traditional slider leash?

Just curious. I like the idea of the slinger and it gets very good reviews on many of the gear sites. I would just prefer to get feedback from the crowd here.

I have two tools with the Slider leash, two with the Lockdown leash, and several more with leashes tied from webbing. I like the Lockdown better than the Slider. Webbing leashes are fine for general mountaineering. I have no opinion on the Slinger.
