    How about a whoopie tie out...

    Self tensioning at that....



    This test tie out has a max length of 5'10" and weighs 0.4 ounces. Made with 12' of 2mm Dynaglide and a 4" section of green thera-band.
    I am not a gram weenie. , But Im starting to see the merits!!!

    Have you tried a UCR version? Less Line and weight. I'm not sure how long it would last though.

    I havent... But Im going to.

    This stuff cuts just like Amsteel. I think they will last quite a long time. The constrictor grips nicely...

    That's a good idea, I'm not sure how they work yet (still waiting ) but once the tension is on, can they easily be released?

    Yes. I need to give it a better test than from my desk to door knob. But it appears that they will work just fine.

    Im also going to mock up a UCR version.

    I will do a video on them and post it this weekend. In my test fit there the tension released just fine. It is a matter or applying pressure on the throat of the adjustable end towards the thera band and using your other hand to pull on the side of the adjustable end that enters the bury.

    Here is a pic...
