I agree the colour helped! I'm definatley a visual learner!

Cheers for the input folks, any ideas on "rope tools" to make? Little projects so to speak!

Re: My footlocking strop

Heres a few things i've been making. The rigging strops are for balancing limbs and there is a dead eye sling made with the left over. The sirius eye to eyes are for my hitchclimber setup and the ring loop is for my lanyard as a second anchor. The pulley saver isn't finished yet as i'm waiting for a d shackle at the retrieval end.
