Following the launch of their Evo winch range, they’ve kicked off their 2011 debuts with the HTX block series. While others are turning to plastics, they’re sticking with metals. To deliver what they claim is a reliable and durable block, they’ve integrated a few traits from their higher-end Racing range. Broken down into individual parts, you’ve got alloy cheeks, a stainless-steel swivel head with a locking mechanism, side-load bearings, and a generous sheave design to accommodate large-diameter lines. The range will be available this spring in 50-, 60-, 72-, and 90-mm sheaves, as single, doubles, triples, single with becket, and single fiddle.
