  1. I keep hearing people mentioning about using a pulley system to finish burying their splices. Just wondered if people have any pictures of this. Never needed one until now, having real issues with a horrible batch of non CE cougar
  2. I've been using for a few months on ddrt. Found it to be really nice, low stretch, great with ascenders, doesn't milk, splice fits through mechanical devices easily and is nice and soft in the hand. Only trade off is it seems to frey fairly easily

  4. Does anyone have any tips on using a foot ascender with the talon spikes or know which attachable ascenders are compatible with them?
  5. In need of a new kit bag. Really like the look and idea of the Courant cross pro kit bag but slap me and call me little miss Daisy if I'm going to spend that much on a kit bag. What's the best out there or are there any similar to the courant that I won't have do an entire day of contacting to be able to afford?
  6. Are you using it whit hitch or mechanicals? Planing to use it whit ZZ Using it with the petzl zigzag
  7. I've got a 60m length, super smooth and nice. Very soft in the hands, I'm very happy with it but not sure on its durability
  8. Got any pictures or info on said new ropes?
  9. Cousins atrax 11.5mm is one of the nicest ropes I've ever had. Nice and soft in the hand but great through devices and ascenders
  10. I've got the arbpro Evo 2's, got them from gustharts. Some of the comfiest boots I've ever worn. Super light and great for climbing
  11. saw a video a few months ago of some guy using chalk on pine cut (presumably to prevent sap getting everywhere) just wondering if anyone has used this or something similar? thanks in advance
  12. looking at making an adjustable length rope bridge for my treemotion with a kong duck. i know that not all ropes are suitable for bridges. so what ropes are suitable? also if anyone has pics of their adjustable bridge id be keen to see them cheers
  13. Was looking at the Salewa crows. My only concern was that the heel was maybe a touch soft and low for a foot ascender, thought the strap around the heel might dig in
