Tip tie and let gravity do the work

Recommended Posts

Latest vid showing some fun cuts and rigging. There has been a lot of unnecessary spider legs shown on YouTube lately and even more unnecessary tip tying and lifting. Gravity is 100% and can most often be used to get the job done. But goes down, tips go up. As long as the rigging line is offset (not in line with you), the but will swing down and away, as the tips lift off the obstacle and swing away.

Over 20 years since the last time I dropped one... hope that's not  a jinx

ive had one come off a twist lock crab !- without a strop it would only take a snatch from an ill behaved branch and its gone - as we know

What you call "ill-behaved branch" is just a result of poor cutting technique...
