I run both 8mm HRC and 8mm beeline on 11mm HTP and they both kick ass. The Hitch Hiker seems to really like HTP.What type of hitch cords do you guys like best with your HH2, particularly those of you using 11mm climbing line?
I'm new to the HH2, but I've been using Ocean Polyester 8mm with 11 mm Yale Blaze, which seems to work OK. (I'm using the hitch someone here came up with, although I forget who.)
vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvI use the hhx with a home made hoster (two yellow wire terminal eyes and wire )and dmm Perfect o bener (the small one) on the Shackle now it don’t have much setback when tending and can remove from bridge quicky for Redirects. (If I feel needed swivel then I use the one Richard sells with it instead of Purrfect o) Just wish I had more room on the Quik pin to make a hoster like the hh2 has.
I like using a swivel on my rope bridge, because it helps keep me oriented and helps to manage a twisted climbing line, not possible using a ring or other non-swiveling hardware. Since swivels come in various styles, some with a snap or a carabiner, the idea of combining a quickie and a swivel isn't that much of a stretch and from a practicality standpoint, it can reduce the amount of hardware used in certain climbing systems in a more streamlined and compact way.When do you see the benefit of a swivel, especially SRT/ SRS?
