    I find that prussiks and tautline hitches work best when the wrapping line is much lighter weight than the fixed line.

    I have heard that before. The problem is that it is hard to find something much smaller than the zing-it that I am using for my ridge line, that is still big enough for my fingers to be able to work.

    Initial indications are that this will be much simpler to use than my previous configuration, as well as a bit lighter.
