Ive been thinking about this since watching Shugs video and Barefoot Child sending me ideas about how to incorporate a reefing system into the TRL. I knew these existed... just havent had a chance to get out and find them.
They are velcro wire tires. Used mainly for bundling all your AV wires together. The nice thing is they stay on the line because of their design. They are 8" long and .5" wide.
Ive figured 5 is a good number for a TRL, and 5 come in right around 4.5 grams of weight.
I think this is a better solution to cord and knots because its faster and the weight penalty is about the same as using cord.
