Re: Catch-All Suspension
Your idea sounds similar to what I will be playing with when my whoopie hooks arrive (ordered this morning) and it should work fine. I will be using toggles and msh though instead of a 'biner
Mouseskowitz, my cf toggles (from a broken fly rod) weigh 1g each or 3g for the pair on my scales, and that's including a dyneema loop on each one
I appreciate that you realize how much your knots degrade the strength of the Amsteel, many people don't. But that honestly doesn't sound safe to me. Granted I'm not exactly small, so that puts the safety factor under 2. Personally I like to stay above 3, 5 is nicer.
