  1. I was just wondering if anyone had bought/used or had any experience with the new DMM iD smart tags for Loler. Does it work reliably? When you retro-fit a tag to any item does it actually stay on the item? It's probably fine if you're a fair-weather climber and look after your gear but what about climbing through wet/dense/slimy/ivy-covered trees and shoving it back in your bag to rot like most tree surgeons. I can imagine the zip-tie tag to a harness and other textile products staying attached but the sticky dot they provide for the caribeeners seems unlikely....and....if it's still there (on a rigging pulley) after a year will it still work??? Please any info would be appreciated

    Stihl vs ECHO

    I made this video the other day - both the Stihl and Echo are on 1/4 pitch .043 brand new chains - watch and see who wins!
  3. Just bought the ms150 the other day - it's really nice to use. The power is obviously not up to the 020 standard but it comes with a tiny baby chain which improves cutting speed - I was surprised, it's not a bad little saw at all. My mate has a small Makita DCS230T so we decided to make a video of them against one another, place your bets now......
