    I love it. By the way, thank you Bannerstone for making me so damned curious about your awesome set-up I just had to figure out how you did it. I'm hooked on Locked Brummels and line splices. Coolest thing I've learned in quite some time. Oh, I'm still a novice, but one day...

    I still use nacras to attach my guylines too, they are just so simple and reliable.

    If I'm understanding this, I see no shackle in your Dutch shackle prusik. It's just a loop on one end for a prusik, and a Dutch Hook spliced onto the other end. A very handy idea, nevertheless.

    The shackle or coupling is formed when the hooked end is brought around an object and fastened back to the larger loop.

    I hope this helps,

    So you came up with this. Dutch asked me to make these a few months ago. (I have been away from the forums for a bit). First thing I asked was why not just use a Flyz, or hey the new Stingerz. But of course he said that many DIY folks like to go super lightweight, so good idea. I made a set with just a bit of difficulty in making the second loop until I came up with the idea of using a single strand of zing-it to pull the other loop through. Works great now.
