Based on your bollard picture, I would estimate you have about 55 thousands of wear on that bollard.
Which in "time till replace" would mean.....?
I know I always ask you questions and then never really act on it so im sorry for always asking and appreciate your time. But do you have any adjustable arms in stock at the moment?
Maybe i send you my old one to inspect yourself? Get to see how the device has faired after miles and miles of rope have passed thru it? Its definitely been thoroughly used, Gordon

I recommend that you replace the bollard at no more than about 70-75 thousands of wear. It would be best to mic the actual wear depth. At some point the wear may tell you it is time, because it will begin to creep, but if not, don't exceed the recommended wear. I can make up a new top arm assembly, which is easy enough to install yourself, or you can send it back and I could examine/refurbish.

For a few months now, I’ve been working with a new upgrade to my BDB that I really enjoy. So, those with a non adjustable version might be interested. I drilled a hole, installed a phenolic ball knob with thread lock, then milled down the bolt head with a grinder. It’s really ergonomic. I’ll attach photos. Happy Holidays to everyone.

Hi Guys

Super stoked just ordered my Compact Bulldog Bone, looking to get a new rope to go with it as my drenaline is getting pretty worn out. anyone have any experience with drenalline and the bone? ive really liked it as a rope but its worn out pretty quickly for me (i was using it drt through crotches wont do that again). Any sugestions as what ropes work well? i can get cougar blue really cheap wondering if thats any good with the bone.

look forward to hearing your experiences and recommendations, or warnings
thanks in advace

Drenaline is very responsive and plays well with the bone ! Never suffered any slippage with my 220 hanging from it.

Did a two stem white pine crown reduction yesterday and the swivel was a definite improvement. Tend loop stayed in place well with the line attached to two bollards but is too long/big.
