Really, Sean? Hard to believe, for this fellow PNW'er. My own experience would differ in the extreme.I just taped my throw line to a pen and wiggled it though a piece of tubular webbing. Got to get the spar down from a super speedline pondo pine. If it was summer, I could have made sure to be able to chunk it down the same day as limbing it up. Breaking out an old flip-line and the Gibbs tomorrow. Normally, I run my flip-lines with hitch cord. Usually don't deal with pitch, and I like to lower-out single-handed, and having a cuttable link never hurts.
Few pines up here, as its so wet.Really, Sean? Hard to believe, for this fellow PNW'er. My own experience would differ in the extreme.
