For home/rec, which would be better for a friction saver. leather $24 , caterpillar conduit thing $40 , arbor rings $60 or just save for rope wrench $80 and eliminate need. (cant use for work yet though) I use works rings on the days they let me train in the trees. Just want to play and practice my ddrt at home and at the lake. Safe and best bang for buck. Gotta keep costs down too.
