    F.S. marly spike replacements (MSR)

    I haven't really thought of a name other than MSR or the double double, if you can think of one I'll send you a free pair. MSR may be confusing because it's a name under cascade design. I think I'll do as others and run a contest to develop one. Lets say at the end of Sunday (1/16) it will end. From there I'll tally up them up and if i can't decide we'll have a vote. If you order and cast a vote prior to the end and you win I will refund or denote your funds to HF. A portion of the sales will be donated back to HF.

    mass for set is ~28g, dims are 0.25x35x52mm 6061-T6 is the material

    accepts 1" strap, right now I do not plan to make them larger and they will accept up to 1/8 amsteel

    overseas PM first please, i'll check into the cheapest and fastest and there is addictional information needed

    break down for CONUS
    $15 = set of clips good for 1 user
    $4 = shipping cost
    total cost = $19

    if you order 2 sets, good for 2 users
    $15 *2sets = $30
    $4 shipping cost
    total cost = $34

    $15 *3sets = $45
    $4 + 1 = $5 (this covers the shipping for as many sets as you order)

    paypal to bloomgorge@gmail.com
    please include shipping address

    instructions on set up will be include, 1000lb tested. the side by side with the clip/strap was instron tested. you can see a little deformation in the slot @ 1003lb load.

    Looks like an elephant to me (when rotated properly). How about The Elephant Trunk?
    Mark is the name and If there is more than one way to understand what I just said....I meant the good one.

    I thought the same thing, maybe a mammoth?? How about Manfred or Manny from Ice Age??
    Experts are the ones who think they know everything. Geniuses are the ones who know they don't.

    Gather round your hearts the tinder,
    lay the oak and pine together,
    kindle all that is within you with a warm and cheerful spirit.

    How about "Strappyderms"?

    (Like Pachyderms, just different)

    Maybe I can think of a better variant in a minute or so.
