    Yeah, I'm not going to start chasing them all over the globe...but it was mighty impressive and I'm very glad to have experienced it. A bucket list item that I didn't know I should have on my list!

    Well, my good friend Stig...in reality I know it won't surprise you at all to hear that Mr. Dent taught many of the same felling techniques that you employ every day, to literally thousands of neophyte and seasoned sawyers alike; the difference is...we learned something of your methods, we just had to do so with 36 inch bars on +85 inch trees :). Which convinced most of us that having a bar longer than the tree is wide is far easier :). Leave aside the issue of 3/4 wrap handles and 75% slopes :D. You would have fit in just fine, Stig...so long as you would be willing to let him be the swinging dick...he had to hold that position, I think :). But the man never let appreciation of skillful work with a saw get in the way of "normal" procedure. Closed mind on many issues, but on differing approaches to solving sawyering problems, his was a radical mind.

    I have to say that kneeling was just about a "never" move for me. There you have it, different tools are best suited to different climbing styles.

    Never understood the "bulky" issue you have issue with, myself. But I am more than happy to accept your premise that those steel shin cup pads are a great alternative. One of the few spur pads of the many I got the chance to try that didn't fall into a strong positive or negative category. Which actually is a pretty strong positive, now that I think on it...most spur pads just plain suck :D.

    A damn good thread, saw a guest checking it out and did the same to remind myself...worth a bump for the new members, I think.

    I had a pair of little 021's as my first "aloft" saws...'bout a hundred years ago :). They both worked just fine, as a matter of fact. Though my memory of all the exact details might be missing a few chapters. Seems I was adjusting carbs often, now that I ruminate on it :D.

    Hey, Brock. Funny, I will always associate that product name with the old and now mostly forgotten Blue Water woven daisy chain. That was a great anchor sling, among many other uses. Life support rated. Might have been before your time :). I still use my several with confidence. I don't know a thing about this newer item :D.

    I didn't care for those short Euro barbs, either. Tried them several times, and wasn't pleased with the results. MY CF's had the long American style gaffs, just like our Bashlins...they were sweet spurs.
