Agree 100%!Those guys are busting to get it done. Quality service and competitive pricing. Spend your dollars where you will, but I like to give the little guy as many breaks as I can. after all, we all started out little guys.
Let us know how you like the triple thimble. I used mine twice last week and it excelled in those scenarios.
I can’t stop thinking of Brittany. The tree gear sales goddess
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.I haven't tried bigger than 9/16ths in the thimble yet. With 9/16ths going through all three holes, anything smaller than 150 lbs or so doesn't want to move and it is a little difficult pulling the rope thru. The 9/16ths gets way more friction than the 1/2. Judging by that, 5/8ths will get get much more and 3/4 will be 500 lbs and up to pull the rope thru and good luck getting it back. If your using all 3 holes. Thats the beauty of the triple thimble. You can tailor the friction by using 2 or just 1 hole. Its just a little experimenting to find out how much friction each rope size and type will make. As for heat, I don't know for sure, I haven't used it for much negitive rigging where I would be close to it and able to feel it for heat, but I've used it for some pretty big stuff without melting any ropes.
