  1. I'm not sure how excited it's possible to be about a chainsaw lanyard but the boys at Reecoil have put together some really well thought out kit. The majority of climbers will have got out on the end of a long skinny branch and reached out to find that the lanyard is already at full extension and still a foot or so short. Having had a good go with the "Full reach" and "Big boss" Reecoil seem to have solved this and included some nice touches along the way. The full reach has a couple of attachment points for carabiners depending on where you want to attach your saw. It seems to sit nicely tied to the top handle and keeps the bar clear of your feet and lower legs. The Big Boss is the bigger version for larger saws and happily takes a 660. Not used anything bigger with it yet but can't see it struggling. Won't be for everyone at the price and there are cheaper products out there but I'm certainly not disappointed.

  3. Hey guys, I'm a newly qualified climber, building up my own kit to sub myself out as I'm working for a company. I was wondering what type of flip lines you guys use and what are their benefits and flaws in the long run. I was going to opt for a standard steel core flipline with micro grab but came across this fancy looking thing https://sterlingrope.com/store/work/kits-and-systems/arbor-kits-and-systems/ultimate-positioning-lanyard-kit and have really fallen in love with its versatility in acting as two in one with the additional use of being able to clip onto your bridge and used as a secondary. I'm aware that prusiks don't like sap which was an initial deterrent from using one on my flip line. Do any of you know of similar kinds of systems or any advice in regards to this particular type. Thanks a lot.
  4. [ame] [/ame] If you click on the youtube link above - it will take you to one of Richard Mumford's excellent ideas videos; within the comments of that video I've (gillettemarc3) posted an idea. Has anyone else considered/developed this 'Bridge Lanyard Loop'? 'Always loved your vids Richard - thank you. I'm going to try out all these ideas. I have one other - your adjustable rope bridge could almost be taken a couple of steps further to make it also an adjustable lanyard in itself. Either by putting a small carabiner/connector where the termination knot is on your bridge plate, or by putting a biner/connector on the opposite (tail) end of your rope - then you could bring that tail end round a trunk/branch and (possibly) through another roll n lock/rope grab/adjuster connected back to the original plate the rope started from (to form a complete rope loop circling the branch/trunk - connection point to connection point). Or you could thread the tail of your bridge through a connector on your D ring, round the trunk, back to your opposite D ring - then possibly back to the starting rigging plate (though that is almost getting back to original lanyard rigging points - side D's). The only reason I'm thinking of this is because I use a flipline - when sometimes all I need is a rope lanyard. To minimise gear - if I'm making an adjustable rope bridge anyway - it might only be another couple of steps to make it into a rope lanyard. Just putting the idea out there for anyone to dismiss/modify. One possible need for this (apart from removing flipline from saddle when it is not needed) is when you are pruning small trees (and don't need flipline + climbing rope so much). Also if you are near uninsulated power lines (3 phase) - you want to minimise metal conducting (flipline) components on your person. At first I thought you wouldn't be able to connect your climbing line to your bridge while you are using the tail end of your bridge as a lanyard - but why shouldn't you? - It might take some jiggery pokery with rope grabs/stoppers to make both bridge and lanyard run to full potential - but it is possible. Maybe in the future lanyard and bridge will be one rope (and consequently even reduce the need for 2 pairs of full size D rings)? - Someone tell me I'm not going completely crazy... : ) Thanks Richard! Read more Reply · Hide replies [​IMG] Richard Mumford 2 hours ago +gillettemarc3 The tail is there for a second bridge, why not a short lanyard as you suggest, I like the concept.....something to think about. Thanks Reply · [​IMG] gillettemarc3 1 hour ago +Richard Mumford Effectively the bridge and the lanyard would be occasionally/alternatively sharing a certain length of the rope (the length just beyond the normal length of the bridge - before it enters a lanyard adjuster). I currently don't have the means to test this out. It may be my only claim to fame - but it could be called the 'Brailsford Loop' (my second name) - or maybe more appropriately the 'Bridge Lanyard Loop' Ha ha - Keep up the good work! Reply · [​IMG] gillettemarc3 1 hour ago (edited) +gillettemarc3 Obviously - if you pull either the bridge or the lanyard to full possible extension on the rope - you will decrease the length of the bridge or lanyard on the opposite end of the rope; unless you applied some kind of 'stopper' or device/rope grab (that is small - quick apply/quick release) that can come up against either the lanyard adjuster or the ct roll n lock and temporary 'lock' the rope from being pulled from either end.' All criticism/ideas welcome. Thanks!

  6. Hello forum Im considering the Trango Cinch as my lanyard adjuster.. Anyone who as ever tried using it as an adjuster? Does it grab the rope quickly? Releases easily under load? Its only going to be used for recreational treeclimbing.
  7. Hi All, Thought I would share this with you. It's my homemade paracord handsaw lanyard. Really simple to make, cost me £2 for the 550 paracord. Just something a little different. Works perfect. Tried and tested!! Now I'm making mini one to dangle from the mirror! Lee :-)

    Strops

    what strops do people use? i'm looking to buy my first kit soon and was just wondering what hitches people use for their strops. the pre made kits on honeybros looks good with a pulley, for £58 but they wanna charge £7 delivery! madness! whereas the strop kit on fr jones is without a pulley and it's £65! so looks like it's £65 either way? just wondering what you guys were using and if it's cheaper to make up your own strop kit from scratch. Cheers Liam.
  9. Ive seen arborists working on anything from crown thinning to actually cutting sections down the trunk. They seem to be using several different ropes obviously i know the anchor. But what is the one they use to strap from their harness around the tree and back to the harness? Is it an average rope or a strop or a lanyard? Ive also seen them use a similar rope in set of two when climbing first time, alternating between the two ropes whilst gradually getting higher up the branches. What are they using? Sorry about the silly question im new to arboriculture doing a college course next year want as much info as i can get cheers
