    We're a bunch of gentlemen, so it's 3 strikes and you're out. And another fella steps up to take a shot at it in turn. Well, unless the first feller proves to be a stubborn one!

    Don't you like it when you flake everything out just perfect, draw back and throw and then about 80 percent of your throwline goes flying upward about 10 feet behind the throwbag in a basketball size knot?

    Me too
    That's why I use the least as possible this damned thing and prefer my 16' telescopic pole for all the trees with low limbs up to 25'. Handy but it doesn't help to correct the induced lack of training with the throwline.

    That's why the Italian space program failed. They ran out of scafolding.
