Well, after 4 years I finally wore my Xtend-n-Climb model 770 out. Several of the rungs and latches became worn and misaligned and difficult to engage so I knew it was time for a new one. I elected to go with the ‘new and improved’ 770P model. According to their website the “P” is for professional. Sounded good to me so I ordered one from Ace H/W and received mine at the nearby Ace a week ago. I am very disappointed. The latches do not seem to engage as soundly as the 770 model and don’t give me a sense of security that they are fully locked. When collapsing the ladder the bottom two rungs require excessive downward force to get them to slide down. I plan to return the 770P tomorrow and re-order a model 770 again that served me very well for 4 years. Oh, and yes, I have a Little Giant & yes, I’m familiar with Tele-steps also.
