Ok. Maybe I'll go ahead and wash the rope I use for hunting today. I've used it for 2 hunting seasons without washing it. It is 9mm sterling HTP and is only 40 feet long. I have a mesh bag and some scent free, dye free detergent. I can lay it out on the garage floor to dry.Static ropes need to stretch also
Same here. I just practiced with a wet rope and hitch cord. Wet equals grippier for my setup. It’s not terrible though. And I’d rather it be grippy than slippy! I always take an ATC into the tree with me for back-up descent method. Rain is not going to be a concern while hunting and using the RW.when my rope and hitch get wet, it gets more sticky
It does not bind up the hitch at all. I've always tied mine this way so maybe it is reversed from normal! BTW this is one of the eye to eyes that you made and it works great.Does the Wrench bind up the hitch, or does it release without resetting it.
Looks to be a 180 degree Michoacán?
Yes, that’s one name for it, I saw it named the Scaffold hitch before it was introduced here as the Petroacan. 180 degree Michoacán is what I use after realizing that most hitches can be rotated to make a different one. It will get confusing if each of these rotated hitches were given a name.If I got it right from one of your posts , it should be named a Petroacan.
That's my preferred one too.
