Re: Majestic

Something that I've seen with pintos spliced like this is that the retrieval shackle can get sucked up between the legs of the Prussic. Had it happen a few weeks ago, and your stuck. It's a right pain. I'd now just put a spacer between and splice a loop to stop this happening.

Re: Majestic

I was toying with that idea Drew. I suppose the load on each leg of the pinto would equalise better.

Here's a standard one I did the other day

Cheers Adam. That one was for a friend, I want to re do mine now lol

Dito to what Ben said. Don't think the blocks have any new colours yet. The new HC's and Pintos do look cool.
