I dont have a photo of it right now but I've been using a 21" 7mm coppa e2e on 8mm oplux (srt). Works like a charm. Oplux has a mbs of over 24Kn. I do prefer 11mm for climbs over 40ft or so. I also rappell on a rescue 8 on it when climbing with spurs. With an autoblock of coursecame across your stitch hitch concept @Brocky while researching ways to back up a rescue 8 with a prusik.. in order to learn twin rope technique (TRT) on the 11.7mm ropes and gear I already own and use. I don't feel confident on 8mm rope really. This hitch is a true gem. Thank you for sharing your innovation with the community
thanks! I looked around for something to use there, I did try a small ring but it was shifting around. I will keep my eye out for something that fits the bill, er cord.
good ideas, thanks. I like that little strap, may fashion one up. I keep searching at the marine consignment, there are so many doodads there. the pvc could be an easy solution.The small double eye strap in post #166 pushes up on the ring compacting the wraps for almost effortless tending.
what is that metal ring? I saw a post where someone called it a wedding band but my wife would hang me if I even tried that hahaUsing 10mm cord it would probably need to have an i.d. of 1” or more, I’ve never used cord that large. The round plastic thimbles will also work, but slightly more drag with the increase in surface area, maybe even 1” pcv to try it out.
