Redundant pulley saver

Not sure if this is in the right section, but I just got a sj and really appreciate the difference a pulley makes, but I don't have a retrievable saver yet. I thought the other day that a lot of guys were moving on to srt with the wrench, so they may have a pulley saver they no longer want and would like to sell it to me? Long shot?

Cheers, Simon.

Buy a ART rop guide much better tool, i only ever had problems with mine getting stuck and the small catch riding up into the pulley.

I don't see the ART being better, just different.
I have a Pulleysaver but will keep it as I still occasionally use DRT on small trees.

Re: Redundant pulley saver

Make one. Plenty on this here, even one that can be made without a splice that I saw the other day while browsin. Gonna be pretty cheap, DMM pinto and a couple meters of prussik cord. Maybe an half an hour to make. and it's always better to have new gear rather than pre abused stuff.
