couldent in theory any thing work, why carry marlin spikes, it was mentioned in the other thread that it is just easier to tie a knot around, is that the case? Does any actual weight rest on the spike it self? From the look of Shug's video the Woopie Sling rests on the knot. And lastly, isent their a knot that you could use to attach the woopie sling directly to the tree straps and avoid the use of the spike all together?
Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.
Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
