I wrapped the rap ring with a method i found here:
It looks like this (Sorry for the poor quality. I used my webcam cause my digicam's battery's dead.):
Do you think it can preserve the suspension line better?
Any other thoughts?
sorry, am super busy at the moment thats why im not replying much.
the stock chord that gets damaged i believe is more due to friction (i.e burning the outer sheath) rather than pinching itself... so wrapping paracord around it will result in higher friction and thus more damage... do you see what i mean?
im one of the lucky few that doesnt really seem to have a problem with the garda hitch. going to possibly do another video on how to reduce the stress applied to it....
give it a go and see what happens and the post your findings i guess!
