    Ive been thinking about it.

    I am planning on offering them in the 1.75 with the Tarp Ridge Lines.... Just a matter of free time to get a system refined.

    As for offering them in the 7/64..... Im still up in the air about it. Ultimately Ill say yes.... But that development may come later than sooner. Perhaps Ill have the smaller ones up by this weekend.

    Heres the version Im working on. I wanted to have it be a single line rather than having 2 legs so that worrying about the legs being unevenly weighted wouldnt be an issue.

    Thanks to Red for guiding me to several different stoppers. I still need to test this stopper to make sure it holds up.... But for now... Pay no mind to the frayed strands sticking out of the line... Still working on production lengths.

    Weight as configured is 5 grams and length is 6" end to end, inside.

    Preliminary test hang was successful. 280# straight down and the stopper didnt budge.

    Ill see about getting some more weight on it tomorrow.

    Id also like to see if I can get the weight down to 3 or 4 grams. Its bigger than it needs to be right now.. I think a 3 or 4" finished end to end length would be much better.

    Also... after loading unlocking it was just as easy as before I loaded it.

    Yes, slide the bury back to release, milk it down to lock.. Very simple.

    where's the tail?

    Hi opie--
    this discussion makes it sound like that loop is adjustable. But for that you need a tail, and the only tail possibility that is visible is the end with the stopper knot, but I don't see it coming out of the side or end of the bury line.

    Grizz, it is not adjustable. Think of a long backslipce without actually pulling it all the way in.
