  4. I went for the budget option a few years ago. They were ok, but yesterday aloft for about 4 hours, they were killing my lower legs. The problem is a metal component eventually makes an indentation in the leather and wool felt pad, and creates a hotspot. I fabricated some inserts out of sewer pipe, sanded the edges, and heated and slightly flattened the end that pads the offending metal protrusion. Now, I haven't tried them, and will need to spend an afternoon on them to report success or failure. Anyone else tried this? Here are some pics.
  5. Does anyone have any tips on using a foot ascender with the talon spikes or know which attachable ascenders are compatible with them?
  6. I have had my 572 xp-g for several months now and I still can't get Husqvarna to reply to any of my messages or phone calls regarding where I can get the double dog kit for the new legendary saw. I was surprised that the saw is being sold with out because all the marketing material shows it with double dogs and chain roller. Anyone else noticed this or did your 572 come with double dogs and chain roller? love and peace M

  8. Hi, I'm not sure if this is against the rules and if it is please remove. A few weeks ago I had an accident at work where I badly hurt my back. Unfortunately this means that my career in aboriculture has now come to an abrupt end. A couple of months back I bought myself a new pair of climbing spikes. I only got the chance to use them a handful of times before the accident and so I'm offering them for sale. Here is a link to them on eBay. Thank you. Neil
  9. Hello, I'm new to the forum - this is my first post, so hello! I'm new to climbing too - I completed the NPTC course in August. I work as an ecologist so climb mainly to check trees for protected species. Anyway, I bought some Bashlin climbing spikes and they're just too long and painful to climb in (pretty much levering my kneecap off). Can anybody recommend some highly adjustable ones that would be suitable for me? I'm 5ft 1! Cheers, Emma Oh - and does anybody want to buy some barely used irons? Bashlin climbing spikes steel (straight), velcro pad -about £240 new!
  10. Hey tree guys, I wanna get my husband a set of spikes, I realise the good ones are pricey so am looking at some second hand ones. I've got £150 to spend, what ones do you recommend? My husband only uses the best gear, nothing cheap if catch you my drift. But I have no clue about which spikes are best. Help?!

    Does anyone else just really dislike the concept of spiking? i can't seem to get on with it at all, just feels really odd, guess it just comes with practice... Liam.
  12. Hi, For those of you that wear Haix PP's, which make of spikes do you have/fit better (if it makes a difference)? Don't want to buy the wrong ones and regret it. Thanks all. Warren
  13. Hi, Does anyone know where I can buy metal bird spikes cheaply! I find them to be extortionate given what it looks like to make them! Your help is much appreciated.
