Recommended Posts

Hey guys.. just got my Drenaline and im absolutely loving the feel and Knotability. Just wondering if anyone else thinks that the spliced eye it came with seems flimsier and less substantial?? compared to Tachyon etc...

Is it a splice or a slaice?

Ah now thats cleared it up for me.. it is a slaice.. just looked at the specs 15kn loading is more than sufficient!

Splicing isn't my thing, but where is that image from?  Looks like the core is exposed?

Its just a google stock image.. and yeah see what you mean! Turns out its a slaice and more than strong enough to keep me in the tree.

Should be easier to feed through mechanical devices

Not with the big Donk of whipping it comes with 6” below the slaice .
Won’t go through a Zig Zag , but then I like that as it means your rope can’t back feed out of your ZZ when changing over leaving you stranded like a ninny on your strop!!!
Someone suggested that they thought the eye had internal reinforcement by way of a thin aramid/Kevlar type insert but it was kind of a ‘fat bloke down the pub told me’ type info data burst so I can’t corroborate it ??‍♂️

Ok stand corrected on the feeding.

Had heard that too about the  internal reinforcement, but no pubs nearby

      Had some woodchips delivered. Lovely quality and for free. Was able to start my garden project. Am so pleased with the service that i have decided to give a tip for my next tip waste load.

      Excellent result last year. I was contacted by some tree surgeons through the site after about 6 months. They were thoughtful and helpfully left me with several piles of clean woodchip, which now helps suppress weeds under my trees. Great site. Thanks

      Extremely helpful and friendly main contact and the allotment was very easy to tip at. Much appreciated!

      Answered phone, dropped off within 10 mins. Access ok for transit but no bigger. 3.5m3 load. Spot on, saved me a trip to the yard.

      Brilliant! Had two loads delivered, spot on time, great bloke, would not even take a few Bob to cover his time and fuel, over the moon. I just have to cut and split 6 tonnes of logs now. I will have to buy the wife a new splitting axe for Christmas. 😁
