    Basically faster than a speeding bullet. I've been playing around with it for a while (think I went blind for a minute) and I do have a minor concern of fraying with extended use. Only time will tell though.

    Well I'd order one tonight if I the flyz and hooks hadn't already shipped for me to make my own.

    I'd say great minds think alike, but I'm just copying what I saw on a video. Still, 8 bucks instead of 20. Then again, I bought enough for two.

    MrClean, if you don't want to mess with it you can send your Dutchware here and order the ridge line. If you do want to DIY, the pics basically show what we do.

    We'll offer that soon lilricky. We started the way we did to keep the weight at an absolute minimum. Once I get past the initial onslaught of orders, I'll add the flyz on a prusik option.

    Just ordered mine as well. Looking forward to putting to use in a couple weeks on my upcoming fall hike with my lovely girlfriend, Dancer.

    I have to admit it was fun ordering from Smokebait and Dutch for the first time.

    Thanks Opie. It means a lot coming from the Master. That Old Man Winter tarp should make for a cozy hang when the weather turns.
