    Absolutely on the sewn webbing straps being inexpensive.

    I'll look at those for future needs.

    Everytime I ordered something from treestuff I would add five 36" loop runners . Now I have 15, and like worthaug said if you keep em on a rotation it's crazy how fast the branches come off the tree

    These babies can change your whole game, on every rig, in every way every day.
    1 of the best things i ever did was commit to carrying a handful up on every climb.
    .
    Make Bowline in rigging line, and every load gets a sling/krab that clips to Bowline eye;
    >> quicker ground return to already waiting targets with slings/krab sets on them ready to go, best position already adjusted 3x
    send down a couple this time
    maybe use another sling/krab set to bend the line out of way to perfect point etc.
    >> reusable, modular quick connections, pulley holders, line benders, handle on stob, PENALTY FLAG TO BE SEEN FALLING FROM TREE LOUDER THAN /OVER NOISY CHIPPER, balance your self better, hold drink etc. multi-function modular connection, speed lining don't come close ways to use these!
    >>i'd say never leave home/ground with out 'em
    >>don't make L-earning curve steeper/longer by not having them there with you to be creative and find existing paths/leaving in truck must factor in grounds finding and sending up etc. >> carry'em!
    .
    BUT, is best if sling is free roaming for even wearing,
    >>but even captive eye allowing roaming has a certain risk.
    .
    Can TOO EASILY get 1 leg of sling back thru krab gate
    >>if plain krab sling just in there, will fall off safely
    BUT if 1 leg steps back thru gate on krab and sling is tied or 'eyed' on krab
    >>WILL NOT DISARM/FALL OFF
    will appear fully functional but only knot or captive eye not shearing holds to krab
    >>captive eye can shear off very quickly, knot will hold some
    >> but neither is equivalent to sling properly set on krab, legs positioned right (whether plain, knot or eye)
    .
    edit:home now

    .
    Just another reason to re-post Dave Spenscer's speedline animation (almost 20yrs old?)
    >>notice how sling/krabs also used to redirect line
    >>can flex rear piece to front on hinge, pulling thru prussik to gain/maintain purchase
    >>notice near end is even used to pullover top piece on hinge for slower hit, while ground control is pulling slack thru prussik
    >>note the spread load of several krabs on big piece,keep load higher etc.
    finish by flipping line from high krab to crotch or around high stob and dropsy daisy!
