I received an order from Treestuff and included was a magnetic sticker of the new Rope Wrench that incorporates a sheave on the inner friction point, and an opening in the middle that looks useful for clipping in to advance the wrench.
Yes, I think so. What is interesting also is you can have a sheave at both friction points and as long as there is friction on the tail, in the form of a hitch, it seems to work fine. Now with the slanted opening in the middle, it makes me think of using it in a hitch hiker configuration, but with a built in slack tending pulley....
Here is the one my friend Eric made that I now use. Aluminium and light as a feather. Will get the new one for sure as soon as Luke has them. Sold my old heavy original one. Notice the brass sheave that surveyor made. I have had this for a couple of months.
I got the new magnet as well. Think I was more excited about that then I was about the rest of the order. Didn't take long to become a rope wrench addict. Really excited to hear ISC is making the next gen!
