What ropes?

Recommended Posts

Steve if you are worid about droping it, put an quick reales bit in the line and pop your little poor thought it while you rig your friction saver.

 

I will not boare you with all the ropes in my colection, as there is less space here than in my shed...

 

TOP TIP form Al's Top Tip Box Griping 11mm lines, try and grip it under knucks in your finurgs rather than in your pams, it a tighter and much sronger grip.

If you want a good rope for day to day work for the monye and wear you will not go to wrong with yale XTC or Elderid Expeirance the couler well just have to ask Trinny and Suesanna about that one.

I have seen servarl people strugle with shop bought split tails with 11mm ropes, as they are mostly 13mm, so it is worth getting a split tail of 10-11.5mm Beal Ginko works great with Yale.

 

The 11mm lines are great for handeling they flow better through the tree, they are more suppel, lighter. The size in the hand is the main problem... so come on Yale get the CE for Poison Ivy sorted and farst.

please could someone shed some light on why you buy a shop bought split tail if you just bought the rope and tied a fishermans you can have about 6 for the same money and self clinching knots are actually recomended for tree work rather than splices:laola::laola::laola::laola:
