Set up with Opies soft shackle last night---INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!
so maybe I'm missing all the enthusiasm about this method on the forum and am just overlooking everyone screaming about how utterly cool it is.
My tree huggers either have a sewn loop on each end or a sewn loop and a triangle (via Warbonnet)...go around tree and through the loop, other loop gets the soft shackle AND the end of the woopie sling. Done. No Marlin Spike Hitch to tie, no toggle to find or carry.
Is everyone aware of the simplicity of this and I'm just not reading every word of every thread?
