    Thanks for the concern, I'll keep it in mind.

    Next week to further my journey into extreme hanging I'm thinking of swapping out the suspension cord for 100lb test braided fishing line. Should shave a few ounces off my rig and keep things interesting.

    Well, if you do have a head injury, you can significantly decrease the weight of your skull by replacing parts of it with titanium plate.
