    Idea For A New Gadget

    I was aloft today, and needed various items passed up via accessory cord. I don't like to use the tail of my climbing line as I climb SRT and most of the line stays in a sports bag on the ground, zippered nearly all the way, so if pays out only as much as I need, going up, and keeps debris out of the bag, tidy etc. The problem with the hank of accessory cord is I have to mind it, coil it, and stop it getting caught on things. I would like a gadget that is essentially a reel of throwline, with a handle to wind it up and a progress capture feature, like a fly fishing reel. One could attach a throwbag and disengage the progress capture, the bag would fall the the ground, groundie attaches whatever, and then you just reel it in, with a crank handle. If you let go of the handle, it holds the load. This would keep the line nice and tidy, only deployed when you need it, etc. I suppose I could just get a fishing reel...but fishing reels are open design, I'm looking for something fully enclosed, like a chalk line reel. (actually maybe that would do). Anyway, does anything like this exist, and if not, would there be a market for it?
  4. 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
  5. Marlow Ropes’ range of CE certified and ANSI compliant climbing, rigging and accessory lines are field proven and trusted by Arborists worldwide and manufactured in the UK (East Sussex) under rigorous ISO 9001:2015 quality standards. Whether it is hard wearing climbing ropes, super strong slings and throw lines or heat resistant accessory cords for prusik loops and friction hitches, Marlow excels in the innovation, quality and performance of arboriculture ropes. A question that we are asked is whether climbing lines should be spliced or not. As manufacturers of both options we see the benefits of both, but have seen the significant rise in Arborists using Single Rope Technique (SRT) in the industry, and therefore the changing nature of the ropes they are selecting for the job. There is becoming less of a need for arborists to always use the spliced option. In SRT the rope isn’t terminated at the harness which eliminates the need for a splice. Normally the argument is that a splice is smaller or slimmer and therefore keeps the harness area uncluttered, but this only matters if you are using the Double Rope Technique (DRT). Non-spliced climbing lines, such as our recently launched VEGA hold many benefits: · Non spliced ropes offer more flexibility for climbing from either end. This prevents one section of the rope getting more wear than another. · Non spliced ropes don’t need to be anchored at the end, in a short tree you could tie the rope in the middle, this further spreads the wear. · No splice means no diameter change. This means the rope is easy to thread up in ascenders and other rope control devices. It also makes rigging and retrieving easier, nothing to snag and can be rigged from either end. · No splice means a bit of damage near the end of the rope can be simply cut and re-sealed / labelled and the rope is ok for further service (albeit a little shorter). · Ropes wear in the eye- in a splice it will always be at the same point. In a knot it moves every time you tie it. Marlow’s new Vega is a CE EN1891 light-weight climbing rope that currently boasts the lowest elongation on the market (1.2%). Designed specifically for the new generation of mechanical climbing devices and modern climbing techniques. It is available as both spliced and non-spliced line and has a tough polyester core that provides extremely low elongation whilst also being energy absorbing, ideal for SRT climbing. The 24 plait polyester jacket offers exceptional flexibility and handling without compromising on durability. Available in lime or orange. Look for the Marlow Black Marker. To find out more about using the non-spliced Vega contact us at sales@marlowropes.com or visit www.marlowropes.com to locate your nearest Arb Shop and Marlow stockist.

  7. Hi, I am posting this on behalf of a group of young engineers. We are we are working a design of a new SRT ascending/descending friction device that can be certified by CE. Our aim is to get the certification as well as to make the climbing process as comfortable as possible. Therefore, we would love to hear from real tree surgeons about what would they want this device to do to make their job easier. So we can have an idea about what would be more important to consider while designing this new device. If you can complete the survey bellow we would very appreciate it. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/DV3RJHG Thank you for your time.

    Not another climbing rope topic

    Recently bought myself the tuefelberger drenaline, was going well until it began fraying and accidentally clipped it with my spikes. So i have two questions 1. Anyone tried splicing drenaline? 2. Any recommendations that isn’t “tachyon” or “poison ivy” for a durable 24 strand 11-12mm rope with low stretch (not much to ask for i know). Was looking at Yale Limelite (because it looks sexy) thanks all
  9. hello boys and girls of arbtalk.

    Samson Vortex Issues

    Is anybody else having the same issue with the Samson Vortex? I love this rope, but the new batches we've been getting have been doing this [see attached: new (left) versus old (right).] The sheath bunches up badly in my hitch, too. While I know this is not the case, it subjectively feels like there's 30% less core inside the sheath as compared to normal batches. Samson has told us that they acknowledge there is a defect, but that they haven't been able to replicate the bend themselves; all seven of our climbers can anywhere along the lengths of the six ropes that we've had this issue with. I'm really bummed--the Vortex was great in the hands, worked SRT and DdRT, and had practically no stretch--but the stuff we've been getting lately is worrying.

    New Rope Suggestions

    First post on here, long time lurker. Been climbing for about a year now and I was a groundie before that for roughly a year. I have learned off my boss and been gradually doing more and more over the last year. Currently taking up the climber roll on the majority of jobs. Nice to meet you all During my climbing I've mainly been using 13mm Yale XTC Blaze with 8mm OP in a hitch climber set up. Rope is a bit shorter than it was in the beginning and minus and eye, so time for a replacement as we don't have any backups ATM. I have used my bosses Spider Jack with Poison Ivy and it's nice but not really for me. I found the rope too thin and prefer the simplicity and the ergonomics of the Hitch Climber. So ideally I'd want something that would suit all the above. Would considering going to a smaller size rope, but perhaps not down as far as the 11mms. Ordering from here so suggestions would be great Climbing ropes | Product Categories | Arborist.ie Consider the Imori 12mm as it sounds like it should fit my needs or perhaps some Hedera 13mm too
  13. Hi all, we're having to replace the rope on a Norse skidding winch, does anybody know what to replace it with?! We've looked at the Marlow Dyneema rope but it is super expensive! Is there decent alternatives? and I'm not sure what diameter we need to get, the one that being replaced looks about 8mm, we want to get 100m length of it so the price soon adds up! Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated!

    Rope Bag Recommendations?

    Hey There, I'm looking for a small-ish gear bag to wear on my back, that will hold a harness and rope (45m). I would preferably like one with stiff sides to allow the rope to be fed in easier. Are there any suggestions? Thanks!

    Twisted Rope Help

    Hello there, I have recently purchased and received the 'Yale XTC-Plus' rope from Honey Brothers. It was sent to me with large amounts of twists in the rope. As I have little experience in climbing so far, I was wondering if anyone knows any easy and efficient methods of un-twisting rope, as it is a pain to climb with. Thanks, Treespasser
  16. yale xtc ropes, good rope? seems like the most reasonable and cost efficient rope for a beginner. Opinions? cheers Liam.

    Just starting out...

    Hey guys, i've just passed my CS 38 and was looking to purchase my first set of climbing equipment. I was just looking for some extra opinions/recommendations before i purchase anything, so is there any particular ropes you would recommend for a beginner such as myself? Thanks Liam.
  18. Competition Yale Cordage are giving you the opportunity to create a name for their latest rope which will be launched in the UK at the ARB FAIR 11th 12th June. The person with the winning entry will win 2 hanks of the new rope Closing date for all entries will be 31st May 2010 This all new 12mm 24-strand climbing line from YALE CORDAGE is based on the same manufacturing process, construction, and success as the 11.7mm Blue Moon rope / Poison Ivy. This rope gives climbers all the advantages and characteristics of a lightweight 11.7mm rope but gives the feel of a 13mm rope in the hand. You can find all the details on this new rope and read some reviews by visiting the website www.nametherope.com To enter the competition also go to www.nametherope.com This competition is sponsored by

    Hitchclimber knot problem

    Hi all, just bought myself a yale imori 12mm and thought i'd try out both 8mm and 10mm ocean polyester cords to see how they both work with it. i climb with a hitchclimber and a distal on top, but FOOLISHLY forgot that i bought my last friction cord from the last trade show in chicester and the nice lad at treeworker cut me off an extra foot above 2 metres. so the issue is i thought i could make a distal out of 1 metre and inevitably its turned out about 10cm too short. obviously it wouldnt be the end of the world to chuck out the two cords, but it got me thinking it wouldn't be a terrible idea to find a knot that would work well on top a hitchclimber that you can tie out of 1 metre to save hassle in future any knot pros with any ideas?
