My recollection was that it cost somewhere near $1,500. For a tool that doesn't raise, that seems steep.
How often is it necessary to run two ropes on one tree?
How often is rope kinking an issue? If that's a concern, end for end the rope once in a while. Picking a rope that's around 25% longer than the height of the rigging point makes for a short tail. When hockles build up, it's pretty easy to work them off the end. Having a really long rope is problematic.
To me, this tool solves some problems in a more complex process than needed.
Being able to pivot the bollard might be nice but I wonder how many times that would be used actually.
The tool is very well thought out and built. There are several clever items in there. Too bad it doesn't seem to hit the right price point. Too close to a GRCS/Hobbs and too far from an FOS or POW.
