  1. Yes it can. Unless we're talking about different knots in which case I apologise. A sliding double fisherman's knot has the 2 opposing knots in "the middle" and 2 loops on either side so it looks like a bow tie. If the carabiner is clipped into the opposite side, it can pull through. The reason I know this, is from teaching students to climb and watching someone tie this very knot and then having to demonstrate to them what can go wrong.
  2. Plus, if a very specific set of conditions are met, you could clip into the wrong part and it pulls itself out
  3. I use the filtered posts in the activity stream the most
  4. I had Strauss stuff in the past and its decent. Husqvarna one is surprisingly cheaper
  5. Have they started shrinking or have you started growing?
  6. I have a Stretch air t shirt that has to be easily 12 years old and is holding up fine. Only a couple of little pulls on it. Normally I'll go to Matalan and pick up the basic t shirts for 4 quid each and wear them for best, when they get dirty or get food medals on them, they go to work drawer. Quite fancy the Husqvarna technical ones.
  7. I've got some of these. They're decent. Slightly thicker than the Nike Pro ones imo and hold up well That hurts

    Road cycling recently. Enjoy splicing and then progressed onto making nets or hammocks etc just to see if I could. My Dad has been going to Archery for a few years and always fancied having a go so might go along with him
  9. Just step in every one you can find then ask to go inside for the loo. Grind it into their carpets for good measure
