    FS: Bulldog bone $150/bo

    Yeah, so anyway, it's gone. Lol. I didn't mean anything by crap, perhaps 'tools that sits unused jangling around the bottom of several bags of gear' would have been more descriptive?

    Rocket is taking it, not looking for any trades. Have enough crap as it is!

    FS: Bulldog bone $150/bo

    Bought last year at NE Grows, used it a handful of times, could never get it to perform as I wanted. Has only a few hours on it at best, and would come with all 3 sizes of bollards. Replaced upper d-ring with a tech cord tether. Would love to IP at NE grows Thursday or Friday if someone sees...

    Sawpod, grigri, petzl double ascender, prussics.

    Tom, I may not even make it down to the tcc, otherwise it would have been all yours good sir. Do believe it is gone. Thanks guys.

    Sawpod, grigri, petzl double ascender, prussics.

    Let me check my pms. I'm keeping it whole. Don't have the time to deal with the shipping, one and done!

    Sawpod, grigri, petzl double ascender, prussics.

    Just thinning out stuff a bit, grigri has seen basically no use, as has the ascender, hand spliced hrc is 5 years old, sat in my bag, maybe seen 2 climbs. Footlock prussic and double pulley. Could I get $155 shipped for it as a bundle?

    Compact Bulldog Bone

    18" bridge on TM, if I remember correctly it's a hair shorter than it comes stock. I blame this fully on Eric and Mac. :-P Velocity is slick as goose poop on an initial attempt with the 5/8 bollard. More testing tomorrow! Lol

    Compact Bulldog Bone

    Fat tachyon would be my 2 year old line that's festively plump. ;-) I'm using a soft tether using the original holes the D ring came in. I have other lines, but would really love to get it running clean on this one! Maybe I didn't read the directions correctly. :-P I kid.

    Compact Bulldog Bone

    Yup, tried both ascent and descent at work here today SRT, no good. Could barely descend, and going up there was an almost unusable amount of drag using the upper tether point with the lanyard over the shoulder. If vortex works right out of the box, why won't my fat tachyon go? Should I try the...

    Tends UP very smooth this way, aa well as using the tether ddrt. Just having issues on the descent. It's markedly better srt, and I may have run a fine file over the backbone as there were still some evident tool marks from machining where the rope ran, seem improved. I'll give it a go tomorrow...

    Compact Bulldog Bone

    Any idea what the cause/effect would be, so I have some idea what to look for? These ran so smooth on the show floor at New England Grows, was baffling to have it be the complete opposite end of the spectrum running it on a slightly fuzzed rope.

    Compact Bulldog Bone

    Yes, I had the standing end of line back to the bridge. I'm gonna toy with it a bit tonight and see what I come up with, ill be climbing all day tomorrow so I'll be able to at least field test it in short order.

    Compact Bulldog Bone

    Well I've definitely got some issues to work out, tried running it today with the 5/8 bollard it came installed with on some well loved tachyon, ddrt. Would barely move, my shoulders are killing me. The top moved and released smooth, the bottom is binding badly. I could collapse the upper arm...

    Compact Bulldog Bone

    Eric has some other crazy idea cooked up, but this is simple, and done with stuff most of us already have laying around. I must have missed page 5. Lol

    Compact Bulldog Bone

    Oceans, here is my 2 minute build of a rough version of a slack tender/keeper for the bone. Ie; as you are pulling slack coming in from a limb walk, to prevent the bone from dropping down and hanging off your bridge. Simple and effective! I could even permanently install the tether in the upper...

    Bucket Truck - Over Center Question

    I love our 55' ALC. Frequently has merit over our 75' altec. The short wheelbase is certainly beneficial. Ours is on an international 4400?

    I couldn't help myself.

    They were all around the same price point of around $135. At least I got a 10% show discount. :)

    arbor plex ok climbing rope?

    I've skidded logs up hills with a pickup truck and arborplex, it's not all bad. At least it's bouncy. ;-)

    I couldn't help myself.

    I didn't consider the irony there, but am sort of rethinking that now. ;-)

    I couldn't help myself.

    It's just so cute, I couldn't not take one home. I can't ever seem to leave a tradeshow without something shiny. Damn it.
