    i have no real time with the tsumura bars but if you hold her up against the new bar and she matches, .050 3/8" etc... i would swap her out quick. i'm pretty jealous of your new saw. before i swapped out my 362 for a 461 i ran a 25" bar on it and she ran well. just something to consider... anyway, use it in the best of health.

    if you're going to stay on the safety blue, go to TreeStuff and grab 4 or 5 ft lengths of ArmorPrus 10mm ArbPro 9mm and Sterling RIT 9mm 9mm cord is pretty flexible on a wide range of ropes for me. and the ArmorPrus is the BeesKnees. i'm 200pounds of climber maybe more now that i've got a girlfriend who makes me happy.

    i wanna say Quercus Bicolor / Swamp White Oak Images of Swamp White Oak definitely white oak family. as to the friction cords.. the things that matter are, your weight. heavier people on smaller diameter cords can seize up the hitch. the humidity/temperature, wet/muggy days can get the rope/cord grippier. cold days less so but still can get the line inconsistent your climb line and the cord matched to it. i think the 2mm difference rule still applies to the HH2. eg: 10mm armor prus on a 12.7mm (1/2") line would be a better combo than 8mm on 12.7mm rope. or 9mm arbpro on yale 11.7mm line. also. how new the cord/climbline is as the rope and the cord get used it can get glazed or can fuzz out. and how often you tie/retie the hitch. some people like getting the hitch set to the cord then just leaving it on the rope between climbs. seems like you're climbing on safety blue? that's pretty dynamic 12.7mm line. nice for learning as it stretches and it's cheap. i've had some success with the michoacan as well as the standard HH hitch.

    i use arbpro 9mm cut to a little less than 4' have also had some luck with armorprus 8mm and sterling rit 9mm. and yes to the beeline. i climb on yale 11.7 and my long line is 200' of sterling addiction. they both work quite well thank you. i have had luck with my samson BRW on pitchy cruddy pines as well. i've gotta say, before you get a launcher, practicing with the throwbag has returns far outweighing the costs. on my short 120' yale line i've got spliced eyes and with start my climbs with a base anchor tied with one end and a Ddrt hitchclimber setup on the other. i ascend to my 1st tip and advance with my lanyard and the Ddrt to a nice high AF tie in. then proceed to maniac out. i also have nothing but nice things to say about climbing arborist's page stand up man. lawrence shultz's SRT series is really cool as well. meaning really really cool.
