  1. Mark 3 has an extra hole doesn't it? Mark 2 didn't if I'm not mistaken
  2. It's a mk3 and there was no recall on the mk2, they just extended the warranty to 10 years. Back to the accident and pictures in question...the issue is the top plate spring has failed, nothing to do with the cam Sorry, I meant that the picture wasnt a Mk 3, not the accident

  4. The picture doesn't relate to the article. Wonder why they didnt use the actual zigzag in the picture. Hmmm
  5. It's also a Mark 2. Wonder why it wasn't replaced in the recall

    Wilder Fury 2

    I'd be worried for Joshua if he goes up against Fury. He's a properly difficult one to fight and I reckon Joshua would be in real trouble
  7. Where did you get the cup?!? I need one of those!!
  8. I've heard that discrepancy in the splices can have a massive impact. Some go through easily and others not so much
  9. The splice is modified so it can be fed into mechanicals. The splice is considerably thinner than a traditional splice
  10. I was going to wear my Hiflex with loads of holes and my Meindls with no soles left. Weather permitting, I might wear a vest as well. I suppose I could put my Cloggers on if I could get a vest to match?
  11. Cloggers are from New Zealand. The Zeros are brilliant trousers. I was given a pair and they're my favourite saw trousers by a long way.
  12. Put the saw lanyard on the top of the saw, not the back. Keeps the bar sticking out away from your legs. I use a Reecoil, mainly because they're awesome and allow you to do this easily and secondly, I think the bloke on the front of the catalogue is inspiring and ruggedly sexy
  13. It's a very expensive process I believe. I think you have to be checked and tested on rope type for each manufacturer. Eg, You couldn't splice Yale double braid if you had been certified to do Samson Double braid
  14. Kiwi Klimbers do but are mega expensive. I just put my foot ascender on loosely, put the spikes on and wiggle the pantin round to get it comfy and tighten it. I'm sure someone will come on and provide a more elegant solution but mine works!!
