My only concern with the Python Straps is they're only 3/4" wide, so I worry about the possibility of damage to the tree. Does anybody else share my concern?
Actually, no. Sorry! It's a tree! I do believe in being good stewards of the Earth, but???? lets be real. I also think you were being facetious! I do use 1" straps, but it's for my ease of use and I plan on using Dutch biners someday.
