    Tom... It is arborist throw line. But they are only using around 10oz throw weights with it. Then pulling up their climbing ropes.....

    Its pretty slick... and sounds like you may actually be using it closest to its intended purpose.

    Got mine today. First off, thanks opie for putting this together and making it a reality. From my end the only word that I can use is "Simple". I don't think that there is higher praise that can be given to a group buy organizer.

    I do have one question though, have your eyes adjusted after seeing neon cord for as long as you did? I took mine out of the package and almost went blind!

    This is some bright stuff.

    Time for a UCR and Whoopie sling party!

    Anyway, great job!

    hahaha...

    It wasnt to bad....What I did the first night was work down the list untill I had 1 spool of the orange gone, than did the same thing with the green.

    The second night I did the same thing and brought up the tail end with all green. The green was the hardest. I should have used blue masking tape... but stuck it out with the regular...

    Seems like it may.

    I am going to use mine for ridgeline and throw line ....over branches and lift packs off the ground and up...food and stuff....pretty weighty.
    Throw line gives me concern about sawing into branch bark.

    As an arborist who uses line like this practically every day, I can tell you you're quite fine using it as a bear bag line or whatnot. We pull our climbing lines up with it (which weigh anywhere from 20-30 lbs. for a hank), and have yet to see any permanent damage to the crotches.

    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Formerly known as Acercanto, my trail name is MacGuyver to some, and Pucker Factor to others.

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness. - Randy Glasbergen
