    The Seesaw System

    I already make my ground crew take turns hauling me with the grcs ;). Sometimes I even let them use a drill to power it

    Lanyard adjuster

    To backtrack to the positioner... https://www.treestuff.com/store/catalog.asp?item=15780 got the carbineer attachment nicely and gave it a nice firm non moving attachment

    Technology in the tree

    1. Winter time I have a jacket with a zipping chest pocket. Some saw pants have zippered pockets that sit in different spots on the legs than where jeans normally have their pockets and they're easier to get into Rock Climbing chalk bags work well to put phones in, usually drawstring...

    Lanyard adjuster

    Sure it's not as nice in the hand as a good climbing line. But it's functional, decently supple but still stiff enough to get a decent flip with, granted I haven't tried to abuse it, but it seems to wear decently well. I bought it with the intent of cutting it off and replacing it if it was...

    Lanyard adjuster

    I highly recommend the zillion over the positioner It's virtually identical in function, but the zillion just did everything smoother and better. Not by leaps and bounds, but it's definitely noticably better. Also I never found much need for the swivel on my lanyard

    Eye to eye pursik

    Depends on how much load you put on the prussik. Me being 320lbs without gear, I would burn through armorprus/epicord/hrc in 2-3 months... Oceans I would burn through in 3-4 weeks! Believe it or not, I could get the oceans with spliced eyes cheaply enough it was more cost effective to replace...

    To follow on, most life support gear is 10:1 or higher, sometimes even 20:1 MBS:SWL

    How have you customized your Treemotion?

    I don't own a tree motion, but I found that with 2 independent bridges, a long and a short go a long way towards avoiding conflicts of hardware. One sits about 3 inches further out than the other, still close enough to be out of the way, but long enough to avoid issues. Also with 2 independent...

    This is the Akimbo

    Shot a couple videos for the I LOVE SRT facebook group and thought I would share them here For Reference I'm 320 lbs and it works phenomenally. Some minor creep on lightly used Bluemoon No slippage on used Poison Hi-Vy The harness attachment is awesome on the Camp Tree access evo btw

    This is the Akimbo

    Tending point is 90 degrees opposite where it wants to be

    This is the Akimbo

    Definitely not life support. If functions the same as a tending pulley on an old climbing in a loop tautline setup. Only load it see is keeping the akimbo located in space, no more than what a neck tether would see

    New gear from Gap

    This seems pretty spot on for weights and diameters. As for heat, I've got 2 splice on tenex and neither one gets what I would consider dangerously hot. Thimble has a lot of surface area and sheds heat pretty rapidly in my experience. Safebloc is the same way, but really doesn't build decent...

    This is the Akimbo

    Played around with it, felt good to me, but one noticable issue, is that the tending point being spring loaded, popped off the prussik when I went to adjust it's position every time
