    Great work! I've experienced the same thing with the Amsteel being deformed. What is the effect if using Vectran or Spyderline?

    That was awesome and I hope you keep these coming. Galen's cameo was hilarious.

    Great video. I didn't look at the 21 min. time and watched the whole way through without thinking of the time. I take that as a sign that the video was both informative and entertaining. Where were you when I was taking physics?

    Time to grab some pillows and see if the Knotty Not holds up!
    Make those fat pillows! Noodling about this stuff is fun, but there's no way I'm packing those pillows along on trail.

    I'm pretty sure I recognized a Mexican Wrestler I know rather well!

    Don't disappear so long next time Grizz ... a right sure mess of us miss your info and humor!
    <hangs head>...really hard these days to make gear and/or videos. Had some time between Christmas and New Years and had lots of fun. Yes, we were lucky to get the talents of Miquelucho from Whoo Buddy Productions. They originally were gonna send us some juggling clown, but who takes the warning from a clown seriously????

    Data is good. More data is better. Thanks for commenting.

    Glad you liked it. I thought there was a good chance it would be a snoozer, but it helps the graphs make sense.

    Besides the sheer entertainment that this vid provided, I was totally mind blown with the education. This is what I crave for from HF, and of course you Professor....

    Much time and effort Grizz, thanks.

    Bottom line:
    takes too long to unwind and rewind to move the ring, crushes/weakens the amsteel, and no statistical advantage over hang sites.
    SRS is pretty much a done deal dead.
    Thanks again Grizz.
