    Question StingerZ vs figure9 'biner

    I love knots, but I'm considering some small "upgrades" to minimize the time it takes to set things up. Anyone had any problems with the NiteIze stuff? They seem to be quite a bit less expensive, but Dutch's stuff looks like it would be stronger.

    The figure 9's don't work as well on the smaller line like 1.75 zing-it. Dutch's gear is designed to work well with this smaller line. I have also had the AL small figure 9 bend on me once, I can't remember how it happened and may have been due to abuse. I have dutch flyz and they will not break.

    i use the smallest f9's available and they work just fine with 1.75....

    I went from 9's to Flyz, because I can leave the Flyz on the line. I used to lose 9's on a regular basis...

    I have had no issues with my 9's even with the smallest line. The stingerz though seems a little easier and lighter.

    Stingerz

    I've only just started using Stingerz, but I like them very much with 1.75 Lash-It

    Same here, the line I use is actually a little smaller than the 1.75 and the smallest F9s work just fine.

    I used to use the f9's and I used to lose them all the time. Knot bones
    as well.
    Switched to the Stingerz. MUCH better

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. Are most people using them with a continuous ridgeline?
