we are going to be trying out our first speed line and would like any tips or guidance.
Controlled or just letting them zip down without a tag line? Uncontrolled is easy peasy, the other entails more work. Watch August Hunicke’s videos on YouTube.
Thank you very much... I'm sure it will have to be controlled it is over a house and limbs are very rotten.
Be careful with what you put on the speedline. You can generate way mote force than you can imagine by loading a tensioned rope like that. If you have enough line, got through a block or a ring or over a limb in the tree you're working on and tie back to a nearby tree down low as to work the spar in compression. As was mentioned earlier, go small. And have fun!
