  1. Singing rock timber harness

    Thanks for the pictures and for sharing your thoughts. I'm looking for this one because it seems very well designed and have a good price. Still undecided between this one and the sequoia. Did you tried to use your lanyard in the rings of the leg loops? (Similar to a treemotion or cliping from the bridge end's rings in the petzl sequoia) Sent from my GT-I9082 using Arbtalk mobile app
  2. Edelrid treecore harness

    Thank you jfc. From the srt/full body options i found the treecore the cheapest option and also have adjustable side D rings which could be a bonus for me as a slim guy (29 inch waist)...it tried a sequoia and the D's were too much in front.
  3. Edelrid treecore harness

    Sorry to dig out this thread but I would like to hear about the durability. Also i found the tree core bridge in many web shops but it's just the lower black bridge. How about the upper yellow one? Does it last forever?
  4. Hello I'm looking to get one of these devices for a new rock climbing setup but it would be a great bonus if it could be also useful doing treeclimb. Right now I have a foot ascender for drt/srt soo I was thinking, would any of these or similar devices (kong duck, wildcountry ropeman 2, ct rollnlock) work reliably well in a HAAS configuration? (bungee cord and a footloop) Which one could be more useful in arb work? Thanks in advance.

  6. New husqvarna chainsaws

    ... coming trolls to this thread?
  7. Eye 2 eye?

    Yah, fishermans or ?scalfold? (Same knot diferent names) work the best. I like to leave around 5cm of tail, just to be sure, like tommy said.
  8. If this is the future im jackin it in...

    Chill people, this is a concept - something designers do trying to think ahead and discovering new things. I would love this drone thing for set up the throw line. They are so cheap these days. Maybee someone can try this idea with a "normal" drone pretty soon. Good new is: you can one-hand that umbilical chainsaw.
  9. Close Call: Rigging Point Failure

  10. Friction cord size?

    For main/climb system I kinda like the thicker 9mm or 10mm cord for 13mm 16 stran or even the 9mm for those 11 - 11.5mm semistatick vertical work ropes. For lanyards or whatever secondary could have 8mm which tend to be more of a "hard bite" on/off behavior. (in my experience)
  11. Petzl Sequoia

    I was almost decided to buy this harness..
  12. Cheap chinese SRT kit???

    I usually use the chainsaw attached to the rope as a weight and because I need it later anyway. But there are some ways to reduce the coil strength. Again, I'm far way of a regular climber, I only used the ascender like 20 days in couple of months. Never dropped the rope so far nor have pulled strands of. I use 16 strand new england, maybee does not help the feed/coil "problem".
  13. Cheap chinese SRT kit???

    I got one of the SOB brand, couple of months ago. But I am not a regular climber. I buy it because: 1-is cheap 2-is not lifesuport 3-is reviewd here: Eccentric Cam Foot Ascenders: SOB (AL-NASR) 4-treestuff actually sells it with their haas and hand and foot ascenders kits: TreeStuff - HAAS Velox Ascent Combo [ame= ] [/ame] I can make a small review, some pitctures and a video if that helps anyone. My only complain so far is the spring being too much strong so I struggle a bit to feed the rope in the first meters.
  14. Hitch climber knots?

    This. Fast to tie and works just fine. I used a lot when I had 1 end of the rope not spliced.
  15. How to descend and work within the tree?

    I would also look at the blake hitch system beacuse if in a change over or if you somehow damage your prussik cord, you can still use the blake hitch (which require no prussik cord) to get out of the tree... Always usefull to know in my opinion.
