Karver Winchless KJ10

The Winchless is a KJ10 flying ascender which couples to a hoist (not supplied) and a rubber band. As its name suggests, it is an alternative to a winch. When releasing the rope, the rope clamp opens automatically. This system is also known as the crossbow. It is particularly appreciated on sailboats where a winch cannot be used. You will find him aboard several Dragons well hidden under the bridge.
