Or, maybe, i'm still not very good at site selection. This situation has left me looping whoopies back on themself, using continuous loops or dogbones several times in less than a year - non-adjustable. So, I'm seeing a silver-lining here with the SRS. By carrying only an additional 2-rings (or perhaps something lighter as noted in the original SRS thread). Then, lengthening my whoopies and using the "tail" to build the SRS system (no extra cordage to carry). Can I increase my odds of finding a suitable hang spot by way - more (a technical term) than 5% Either way it's still good to know that the SRS method can give an advantage at times. Copse pS pW 100 .41 .37 250 .73 .68 500 .74 .63 750 .55 .41 So, does this mean that the probability of finding a hang spot using a SRS can be 7.4% greater in a 250-tree copse, upto 17.5% greater in a 500-tree copse? and about 34% greater in a copse of 750 trees? I'm no math guy and I'm only on my first coffee for the day, so let me know if this is correct? __________________ - Loki, "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
