I'm trying to get the boss man to buy us a nice long static line for speed lining. I'm thinking I'd like a 300 foot, 1/2'' KM111, Is this a good choice? Economical suggestions? I'm looking to find a good price on this, if the price is too high, i'm not really sure he'll go for it. You know being this isn't one of those items you are gonna whip out every day.
Other that the rope i'm looking to upgrade from what we're currently using. I thinking the Petzl tandem pulley which i think goes for around 39, as well as a the Petzl Rigger plate. This should be a nice combo i think. I figure these could be either connected w/ a couple of biners or maybe a couple of s.s. bow shackles, this might be a little more compact.
Does anyone have any photos of their speedline kit? Any suggestions of good hardwear/suppliers? Any great tips out there to making speedling a more successful activity.
I did a removal yesterday where i speedlined a few branches out over the house. We used a Grcs at the base of the tree being removed, and a porty at the tree in the front. We were using the CMI pulley, which has both a bottom and top attachmement, this was being used on the speed line, which i was using 11mm Km111, which had to be attached to a 120' highvee b/c the 150' km111 wasn't long enough. Any way, there was a total of 270' of rope being used total. I'm looking to work out a few flaws in this system, b/c i saw a few things that didn't go as well as they might should have.
I'm gonna resize a pic and then post.
