  1. Too right, trying to say no more often than yes, select the jobs I want now and gain some more time at home now. A change in outlook now.
  2. But you would not have it any other way Mark.
  3. I use a CT foot ascender and HAAS set up, the teeth are designed to separate and grip the fibres without undue wear, yes you will get some wear but the benefits outweigh the disadvantages. When the rope wears buy a new one. Yes we all started on prussics and blakes but we have moved onto more advanced techniques, you will too in time, due to the increased efficiency they give and nobody can resist shiny shiny new kit.
  4. Sensible chap, got a Jack Russel the same, no fear.
  5. Did you not let Igor out to join them?
  6. Must have been the accent.
  7. Our swallows already left.
  8. Maxi flex has a memory for kinks.
  9. I would assume Andy that it was not any better than no filter at all unless it is a turbo in disguise.

    Prusik cord..

    Personally I use thinner accessory cord with a 11mm rope. As for using 10mm, give it a go at low level , if it grips keep it, if it doesn't change for thinner. Your hardly going to plunge to your death..... if your only 2ft off the ground trying it.
  11. That's why you have a double hernia, Hero.......

    Agree found cutting hedge tops with a pole trimmer all day the worst, wrecks your shoulders. So stopped doing it.
