Dutch PMed me after my last post - thinking one his Flyz may have broken (
Not at all! The Zing-it CRL
the one Flyz
The Zing-it makes a sharp right angle bend as it exits the Flyz hole nearest the tree - and though the Flyz hole edge was not "cutting" 'sharp', that sharp/tight bend was the probable cause of the Zing-it's failure in the very gusty, high winds...
Afterwards, I simply altered the Flyz by giving all the holes' edges more 'bevel' and am confident that should be enough that a Zing-it CRL won't fail again at one of the Flyz...
As said previously, I would have selected a more sheltered location
if out on a trail - but we can't always get out to where one would rather be, so the backyard gets used for both a quick 'fix' and/or experimentation...
for the concern, Dutch! (plus the offer of replacement if a Flyz had failed - but I think you probably still have a perfect record going!!)

[Note/clarification: any or all of the above signature lines are NOT meant to be an affront to anyone in any way! - simply means that I am very excited to finally be attempting a PCT thru-hike in 2014, and attempting to hang the entire way, too!!
