  1. THIS ADVERT HAS EXPIRED!

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    Due to a career change I'm selling this climbing kit, it's a two rope system and contains everything needed except a harness. Everything was bought by me from new. All items except the odd bits of accessory cord are still on a valid LOLER certificate until 20/07/24, which I can provide. Everything will also pass another LOLER with no issues as it is now. Items aren't very old and have only been used a handful of times, a few bits would look much brighter after cleaning, kit has always been stored properly with any wet kit being properly dried out before putting away, as well as bags been left open to allow air circulation. The kit includes: 1x Stein 70 litre kit bag - has a couple of small holes but nothing major 2x Stein Vault rope bags 2x 35m lengths of Yale XTC Plus 12.8mm rope, both with a spliced eye 6x DMM Ultra O triple lock carabiner 2x Stein Cambium savers with retrieval ball 1x Tuefelberger pulley saver with retrieval ball 2x Tuefelberger Sirus loop prusik cords 60cm 1x Petzl grillon lanyard set 1x set of AGS climbing spikes - these were just cheap spikes as not needed much, the tip of the gaffs are slightly bent, but this could be filed out, or replaced, the gaffs should be interchangeable with Bashlin gaffs. 3x extra prusik cords, made from 9mm Marlow Boa accessory cord - these do not contain serial numbers therefore will not pass a LOLER inspection, but are in perfect condition. 1x extra length of 9mm Marlow Boa accessory cord - no seriel number 1x extra length of Marlow Gecko rope - no seriel number The cost to buy all of this new would be just over £1100 Open to sensible offers Message or email is the best way to contact me.

  5. Hi all I am new to rope splicing and I'm interested in learning more. Are there courses running or does anybody know of good books/videos to learn. Also am I right to be able to splice commercially you have to be signed off by each manufacturer. Cheers
  6. Hey guys.. just got my Drenaline and im absolutely loving the feel and Knotability. Just wondering if anyone else thinks that the spliced eye it came with seems flimsier and less substantial?? compared to Tachyon etc...
  7. I recently bought a Yale Bluetongue 11.7 but I've noticed after first use with a ZZ1 that it doesn't stay round. It flattens through the zz and through the rings of the cambuim saver and stays flat under load. I've read other posts praising the bluetongue for use with a zigzag so is this a case of a bad batch? Should I send it back? Thanks for your thoughts.
  8. Hello everyone, I am a green beginner and this is my first post so go easy on me if this is a subject that has been discussed to death or is so obvious it doesn't need explanation. I have done a search but only found one thread that seemed to touch on it slightly, which was someone asking whether some LSK rope they found on ebay was legit. I am just gearing up (just for recreational and hobby purposes for forseeable time) and the bit of gear that has been left till last has been the most important, the climbing line. Because it is somewhat confusing what types of rope is suitable, and because anything labelled / marketed for Arb use costs at least twice as much as seemingly identical but less excitingly coloured alternatives. Would anyone care to share experiences and information about the use of non arb line as arb climbing line and how well or badly they functioned for the purpose? From the information I have seen, it seems that all these varieties of rope have a similar construction braided polyester, nylon or polypropelene with dyneema or aramid cores available in marine rope. Arb specific rope seems to prefer lower strand numbers (for durability?) , half inch diameter for traditional blakes hitch climbing and 10mm-12mm for SRT with devices. Every explanation of why only Arb specific climbing line is suitable for trees (compared to other semi-static ropes) is that they hold arborist knots while others (caving, marine etc) do not. But the manufacturers descriptions of most modern semi static rope offerings from safety equipment fields and especially rock climbing companies like Edelrid, Petzl, Tendon, Beal etc.. emphasise "Excellent knottability". Are they lying? Is excellent knottability in mountaineering terms actually piss poor in arborist terms?
  9. Shows how tenacious climbing line can be.
  10. 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?
  11. 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
  12. 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 [email protected] or visit www.marlowropes.com to locate your nearest Arb Shop and Marlow stockist. View full article

  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. hello boys and girls of arbtalk. I was originally looking for mike popham of loler uk as ive deat with him before. i sent him a text but no reply as of yet.*sent 2 days ago* if anyone can pm me a number for him ill check it against what i have. please and thank you in advance. if anyone else can offer their services for 2 ropes to be spliced we are based 10-15mins outside ely. please send me a PM as i get an email notification. many thanks Ian Clarke
  17. 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.
  18. Google Oversetter Translated from a Norwegian news-site.. Breaking strength of 25291 kN. Not bad! But how would you tie a knot with that?
  19. 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
  20. 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!
  21. 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!
  22. 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
  23. yale xtc ropes, good rope? seems like the most reasonable and cost efficient rope for a beginner. Opinions? cheers Liam.
  24. 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.
  25. 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
