    I guess I better not try a RR...... The BDB is the best that I’ve used. Midline attachable, adjustable (mine only with bollard changes) one you get it figured out, it’s pretty good. Never tried the Akimbo or RR..... ZigZag runs pretty sweet, but the links feel fragile, I want bulletproof...

    Hitch hiker/2/x thread

    This did work well with the shackle. It was a little work to find the right shackle, I think I ended up getting it from Wespur. I never tried a slick pin. I did previously switch from the steel biner that the HH2 comes with to a different rounded steel biner, that tended better than the stock...

  7. rustykfd is still at it.... THIS dude is on something

    Agree with this 100% BTW, just visited your neck of the woods on my MC. Generally of course, I don’t know exactly where you roam, but I was around(Cecilville, FOS, Bald Hill/Mountain, Lost Coast/Shelter Cove, Ave of Giants, Smith River area)...... just wandering around. Those trees are...

    Cory makes video about Cory. Trees is one of the things he does. He also works on his truck and his house and keeps his shop a hell of a lot cleaner than I could ever hope to. Cory shares his struggles and triumphs, if he was perfect, no one would be interested. I’m not sure why some of you...

    I’d much rather watch Human (Cory) than Daniel........Daniel makes me want to puke, Cory is entertaining at least. If you catch the episode about his history, you might get a little of where he came from. He’s got quite an interesting history. If I were him, I’d be proud of where he’s at in...

    Looking buy used climbing spikes

    Are you the local climbing spike dealer? LOL The Buckinghams I got from you are still going strong as I’m sure you’d expect. Pretty sure they’ll never actually wear out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sena 10s - possible to communicate between headset and phone?

    My experience says just have her call you. After you pair your phone, of course. Then you can listen to tunes too. Not familiar with the app. Been using the SENA for 6 or 8 years on my MC, wonderful gadgets. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I got advice from a Hotshot years ago to use thick merino wool socks on the fire line. He was right, I’ve never had better luck with my feet since the switch. They also don’t get funky. Believe it or not, I can do a 14 day fire assignment with 2 pairs of socks and underwear, all merino wool. I...

    What would you like to see introduced or improved in arborist equipment?

    How about a smaller locking caribener, swivel the gate out so small size isn’t limiting factor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
