    Makita xcu06 top handle 18V

    It has not that much torque but it's still excellent for most of my treework...If you like a more beefier version you should wait for the 2 x 18V version (XCU08)

    Anyone use 2 flip lines?

    I use 2 fliplines when I climb up a tree to create a TIP, works faster than climbing with one flipline/climbing line. When I have a TIP, I throw the second flipline down.

    What am I doing wrong? ART Positioner

    did you order the positioner with the wire core cam? It comes with cams for normal- and wire core flipline. https://www.treestuff.com/store/catalog.asp?item=4681

    Pros and cons of long, stock, or shorter length harness bridges

    Can you share how it would sever the bridge in a fall? I was thinking the load would still remain on the D ring as with the original stopper knot (which is still in place ;))

    Canopy TIP

    ok, but that would mean fiddling with a small pin up in the canopy.. I agree there's a small chance it would come loose even without a pin. Nevertheless it's not rated for life support.

    TAZ LOV2 descender

    I climbed with one 6 weeks ago, great to go up and down. Hardly any friction on ascend, when descending you have hang back in order to enable the ' brake'.
