    Default Buckingham Tree Squeeze

    I am thinking about getting a few for a few guys to try, It seems like a good product for many applications.
    About $200 each, I want to get just a few and have certain guys try it. We have about 22 climbers so that would be expensive unless it is as useful as it seems.
    Just wondering if any of you have used it or are using it and your opinions of it.
    Thanks, Jeff

    There is nothing about that product that makes me wanna spend $200. Especially for 22 climbers

    It's just an adjustable friction saver right? Or am i missing something? If the hang up was for the stiffness part, why not just use a wire core lanyard to do the same thing?

    Looks pretty easy to build.
    Which one are you thinking of getting? There's a few different ones.

    $170 at forestry suppliers.

    SRT provided these qualities.

    Some prefer, or only know DdRT/ MRS, others are required by someone to use it.
    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.

    I use my AFS/AFCs both Ddrt and SRT. Redirects as needed.
    Make my own. Piece of rope, Prussic tied as a klemheist with a small steel ring and crab. Bet there isnt 50.00 invested in it.
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.
