    Default zig zag

    I just climbed on it for the first time, did a challenging reduction on a 60' sugar maple. Thing is sweet and smooth! I used to love my friction hitch but after one 3 hour climb, this seems to be significantly better

    There was basically no learning curve. And when it took up slack by itself after getting some rope weight hanging below it...

    I often wonder how one would work with a wrench...

    I would hope, that with the wrench modification at play, there would be less side loading on the links that led to cracking.
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    ZZ was my first mechanical. Put a Reon rounds tether to it and it works flawlessly SRT. I use it somewhat a lot. For doubled rope it’s hard to beat.
