    I agree on the Dutch Hooks... I've switched to ZingIt Evo Loops on the tree end.. much easier to hook and unhook and I can do them one handed..

    FWIW,Dutch does offer some hooks other than what we refer to as Dutch hooks.I rigged a pair on a ridgeline and they work fine.They are metal but I don't think titanium and are super easy to deal with.I carry a spare pair of the official titanium hooks set up on loops just in case somebody needs one.

    If you're referring to these.. proceed with caution if you're using them as you would a Dutch Hook... They are aren't very strong. I tried it in place of Dutch Hooks a few years ago and it snapped when tensioned.

    Hey MikieM,
    Yes,those are the ones I have used without incidence so far.They are rated for 30 lbs according to the website.I do carry a set of the titanium Dutch hooks as backup though.
    Any engineer out there happen to know how much force it takes on the hook to tension it?
    Inquiring minds want to know.....

    I didn't break them torquing them down, it was a mild breeze and mid-size trees with just a wee bit of sway..

    I wonder if Dutch's hook worms would be a better option.They are titanium and would release from the prussic easier than that tight little Dutch hook.Anybody use them in a ridge line application?

    HookWorms are aluminum, not titanium.
