diy pulleysaver - rope properties

Recommended Posts

How much did that cost them?



Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk


I didn't buy the Orange rope, pinto was £27.25 little biner was £5.07 Sirus cord was about £3.26


Prices may not be all that correct as I'm keeping that under my hat.

But the OP doesn't want anything with splices because he feels he would need to change it every 6 months.


Is he nuts?

Having looked around the internet for help here's my result. The cocoon is an improvement on the pinto as far as ease of retrieval goes. I guess more importantly it allows a pre-sown friction loop to be used to attach the pulley to the rope meaning no bulky knots (as when pinto is used) and replaceable without needing a new mechanical device (Ropeguide 2010).


It's defo not as cheap as some other designs but I already had a fimblCLIMB and robbed a couple of bits from that. Otherwise it has a shop bought feel and the best bits of both the ropeguide 2010 and the pulley saver but being a bit cheaper than the former.


The loop T is disproportionately expensive given all it does is allow for retrieval but I couldn't find another cheaper but still elegant solution - over to you again internet peeps!
