Petal have a new Z.Z out which is compatible with MRS and SRS. There's a review of it in Arbclimber issue sixteen.

Not bad now, thanks, ? How are you keeping? The new Z.Z with the Chicane looks the tits, apart from it looking a bit clunky. Haven't had a chance to use one yet, another shiney bit of kit for my list! ???

I climb mostly MRS with the older Z.Z and a H.C setup. That said I have an SRS setup that I use to access larger conifers and some broad leaves for pruning jobs. I use a B.A with a running Bowline with a yosimite tie off coupled with a R.W setup. I agree with your caution re: the B.A. I wouldn't use it on a rigging job for example. It's hard to beat SRS for access and then switching over to MRS to work the tree.

Ah good man, plenty of time for rec climbing now so there is, ? Sycamore is nice to climb especially when it's mature. It's a great time for experimentation with new systems. She'll be glad of the heat from that timber if we get a cold snap. I'd be handing her the maul and I'd be telling her to get cracking with the splitting, ?????
