Singing Tree Rope Wrench! ( *the shiny metal version :D* )

Not sure if anybody will have seen this yet as the video is unlisted for some reason..

But Kevin Bingham has got the wrench into production now

Very tempting says the gear addict.

Re: Singing Tree Rope Wrench! ( *the shiny metal version :D* )

Nice video, its all magic.
out of all the the SRT gadgets i think this will incourage more people to give it a bash. i can see this catching on purely as its so simple. I tried the F8 revolver and liked it, still use it when i'm choging down but this is the next step. anyone know a price?

Re: Singing Tree Rope Wrench! ( *the shiny metal version :D* )

Interesting to see feedback reports

Re: Singing Tree Rope Wrench! ( *the shiny metal version :D* )

only had a very limited time on it but swings are sweet, it offers a real nice controlled amount of friction and ascends real easy without obstructing the hitch. still got to play around with the length of the tether though to fine tune it more
