Grand fir - Blocking

Recommended Posts

Great vid Reg, I enjoyed the chat and slower pace of the vid (not just cutting and falling), gives more of a feel for how a day 'in the office' actually is. Cheers!

Been chopping and changing my mind between the gopro and new drift since you mentioned it Reg. Think i'm going to give the gopro + black a try though

 

I think they're both great value Steve, just have different qualities.

 

I like the shape of the Drift, the fact that its water proof, the external mic option, playback screen, and obviously the extended battery life.... which for a days treework is a must really.

Nice video Reg, easy to get lost in it looking at all that beautiful scenery, couple of funny commentary bits though. I see your still using the wrench and see you remove your line out the way to gaff down but just wondered if you use or thought about using a optimised length of retrievable top tie? Really doesn't take no longer than it took you to move your line out the way.. :)

 

Anyway hope your well fella :)

It's the shape that does out me off the go pro. It's not so bad with the front mounting though

Haha. Problem with gopros, are the fact that they stick out so much, not sleek like the Roam or Drift.... And much more expensive.

Yeah but you don't have to wear it on your noggin do you Benn?

 

As I was given mine, I bought a few accessories from ebay at a bargain. Chest Harness, Head Harness, and Monopod. Plus a carry case for safety.

 

Although I am sure you can get the bits and bobs for other cameras.

Yeah I'm well Adam, thanks mate.

 

I'd have ran down that pole with the long gaffs, as it was I had the shorties. Are you talking about rappelling down the singled line and then retrieving it with the tail ? It doesn't work so well on rough or flaky bark conifers....and besides it just looks too gay to be seen doing that out here. Spurring up and down poles with a minimum amount of clutter is Something you're doing on a daily basis, time over....so you rarely even think about it. And weighing only 155 pounds, or there abouts, its no effort really.

Haaaa,

 

Well just a thought :D

 

Maisy asked if that was me in the video (she's nearly 4) I said nooooo that's uncle Reg ;) she just looked and smiled :)

 

 

Glad you well mate, what tether are you using with the wrench out of curiosity? ;)
