sitback on srt

Recommended Posts

My srt combo zigzag with rw with a 27cm tether gives me a lot of sitback when after ascending; you try to descend.

Is this due to the lenght of the tether?

In the petzl combo zz plus chicane, the lenght of tether seems to be around 15cms max?

Dont use a a zigzag for srt, but it could be the shackle moving causing more sit back? My tether sits on the side of my hitchclimber on the same krab that fixes it to my bridge so there is no movement.

From memory I don't think you get any sit back from the chicane ... if I could get on with mechanical ascenders after using one of our lads a few times it would be the one set up for SRT I would use but I just prefer hitches !

I use a short quick draw tape sling with heat shrink on, if you get the heat shrink tight down on to the shackle and the rope wrench it removes the floppyness which does help. My rr sits just high enough it can’t contact the zigzag, probably about half the length of yours @naturarbo

I notice a huge difference when the heat shrink wears, I redo it every 6months or so.
