Rigging rope wrench

That’s a good point but only just. If you’ve got the wherewithal to pre tension a piece, you’ve probably got the wherewithal to hold/run the piece. Maybe you’d be glad of one for something like tensioning with a truck tow ball and you don’t have a portawrap/bollard on the truck but even then you can make a portawrap with a cut crotch or something and it’s straight back to not being an issue.

I remain open minded but I reckon 95% of the time I used one I’d be cursing it or going up to unhook the wrench.

 

I'm not sure of your experience, but there are lots of occasions where the base of the tree in inaccessible for a friction device. Its far more predictable than natural crotch friction, and if you're rigging branches that are too light for the wrench then you should be holding them 🤣

I've got some game but I'm not especially burly so rig all sorts of small stuff a real man might cut and chuck. Don't think I'm closed-minded about wrenches btw. Happy to be proved wrong if they're really good.
