    Can only second a lot of what's been said.

    I've had a good ol' read of the posts and made my choice - remember there's as much help for you to set up / install as there is to help you decide in the first place... Plenty of wisdom about for knots, splicing and the like.

    After only a few weeks of hanging I'm already modding equipment and DIY'ing some myself! A long LONG way from anything requiring any great skill but DIY none the less.
