2 Days Ago
Yep, the CE lanyard is a sweet tool, but I can't use one, just too skinny.
I used 3/4 inch for many a year back in the long gone manila cable cored days that some of us oldsters will recall :D, and you are right in that it is very easy on the hands...but those days were before the sticky gloves like Atlas came on the market.
I tell you it was amazing to experience how much better grip is offered, much easier on the hands, that a high friction glove provides with smaller diameters. Not that I think 5/8 inch flip lines are hard on hands...but it does make a huge difference with 1/2 inch or smaller to have these gloves.
