    It is all about the angle of the stangle!

    I don't have the set-up worked out, the punchline is autoerotic stanglization.

    But seriously, I had this same in mind when Willie had a bad, leaning dead tree at a campground, near a bridge. Has its niche. Use it time to time.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    With using stangle dangle, is there an increased chance of stank on your hanglow?

    Not sure if it was hung or not.. after the stangle cut failed to release, I just took a step back and looked at the situation on the ground and thought "I can get another 18" of drop here", which was in alignment with my "use everything to your advantage" philosophy.

    Thank you Daniel for giving this cut a name. Been doing it forever just didn’t know what to call it. I like it for tops that have to spear down. It keeps the tips from whipping as it passes by

    Its interesting, a spear cut with a pull rope.

    No rope for me. Just a bit of assurance that I won’t be subjected to the sting of a twig accelerating at close to the speed of gravity. Chipper whip on a cold day is the only thing I’ve found that is close in comparison

    It's a spear cut, period.
