Heart attack, chemo, septis, stem cell transplant and pneumonia within the last twelve months :banghead:

I'm only fifty three but it may take some time before I'm fit enough to do anything else except aerial inspections.

 

I reckon I'm so lucky that HSE should except that I only need a single line:001_rolleyes:

 

 

Always banging on about something, Prentice, give it a rest will ya.

seems like the whole thing falls apart at requiring one to throw the throw ball twice to get into the tree.  thats just never going to happen.  I consider myself lucky when I can get one shot. but two????

My throwing abilities are based on luck not skill, I’ll be able to throw both balls at the same time to speed things up.

Are they easier to throw?

It's all about the timing. May need something slightly thicker than a throw line to safely base tie it once has been lobbed into the crown.
