lets see what you got buzzards. i saw a post on "i love srt" that a guy had on loop a ring and something else and said that is all he ever needed for redirects. I got a couple simple ones i have been playing with. I will post pics soon

Variation of the MultiSling Redirect (not sure who to credit for it, but not my invention)

A night of My Imori wouldn't fit through the ring on the MS, so I girth a large DMM anchor ring and a ultra O into a loop runner. Bight goes through the ring, revolver into the bight, tie tail of line onto revolver for retrieval. It retrieves like a dream and it's quick and easy to setup. Love it.

This is what I'm using 95% of the time. If I leave myself along ponytail, there's nothin to chase. Otherwise, it's a sling on a biner.
Am I really just missing the boat on te retrievable redirect? I've messed with it some and when it goes poorly, you're totally sunk. Definitely there are a few situs where it would be the bee's, but in general it seems to me to be a hassle. KISS

Dude I totally get where you're coming from with keeping it simple
I guess some ppl don't like having to feed my entire tail through a crotch. Gets old quick

A non-retrievable mechanical redirect is quick to put in and easy to go back to and take out when you're done. I'm missing the appeal of the retrievable, how much time does it save in your day, maybe 2-5 minutes? I don't mind if someone comes up with a super cool retrievable that doesn't increase rope management woes (dragging a release tail along with you or worrying about parts hanging up), haven't seen it yet.

Are you talking about retrievables or any mechanical redirect?

Spot on Jon.

Let's all just be honest.
We like f***ing around with rings and pulleys and slings and stuff because it's fun. Tinkering is fun. Inventing new redirects is fun. Natural redirects are easier and honestly faster. But a creative person (with the drive to invent, and create, and test, and experiment) cannot reinvent or improve upon the a branch union.

Get what I'm saying? I'm not arguing that retreivable redis are better or that they are neccessary.
Personally, I want to tinker. Like a mad scientist. Mwhahaha.

Do you set your line with just enough tail to hit the ground?
This was in the shop
It's meant to be retrievable from in the tree and the ground
So yes, if you want to retrieve from the ground, you need enough tail to for you to reach the ground.
I'm sorry did I miss something I feel like I'm missing something

The reason I asked is that you said it's a hassle to put your tail through nc redirects.

One of my favorite things about srt in general is that you can set your line so that you have the minimum tail needed for the climb. Make sense?
This is a new idea to me, the minimal tail thing.
A lightbulb just kind came on in my head: "having a pile of rope to manage in a tree sucks". I like the idea of having less tail to screw around with

So you anchor your line with just enough tail to reach the ground? What happens if you want to descend to the ground from a natural redirect? Do you have to climb back through it so you have enough tail to get back to the ground?

I suppose you could just anchor your rope with enough to the reach the ground plus X amount of feet to accommodate the added redirect. But that requires the foresight to recognize the need for it before you leave the ground.

Am I getting it or am not getting it

If you build a good multiple belay (DSRT), the second line can be rigged via the working end, i.e. not heaps of yarding, thrown over the redirect point, attached to the main line via connector or knot block and performs to completely load share the climbers mass, is 100% safe and is easily retrievable because there is no hardware at the re-direct point. That sentence had too many commas, hope it makes sense!
