I still have my zk-1 and i think i prefer it to the zk-2 and hitchhiker. I might be the only one, but i like how i can adjust it and have it put more friction on the rope. Add a stiff tether and it is perfect!
I kinda have to agree on the zk-1. Now that I'm on the zk-2 I'm having quite a few issues with my hitch binding up. The zk-1 added more friction than the zk-2 does. I'm definitely burning through hitches faster too. Maybe I just need to dial it in more??? The zk-2 sure is sexy though!
I have to disagree. I used my ZK-1 for the first time today since getting the ZK-2 and had a lot of troubles with too much friction.
My setup for the ZK-1 isn't as finely tuned as my ZK-2 but I find the ZK-2 to advance smoother up the rope and engage quicker.
I believe it all depends of your setup though. What works for one person won't always work for another.
I can't say which one I prefer yet. I can say this though, with the 2 I feel like I have to really collapse my hitch to get good speed for big swings, I don't recall that being the case with my 1, which I ran in the most wide open setting.
Kevin i figured so just thought i would check. Treezybreez does the wrench go down towards your hitch at all..if you know what i mean it looks like it would but i could be wrong. Definitely looks cool too!
