    I have done extensive research on all these principles.....i have found, that, diaphragm valves, albeit INSTANTANEOUS, is non-warranted in these applications. When a projectile with such a high weight and density (shot-filled throw-bag) is subjected to such an immediate dump of high pressure air, most is LOST out the end of barrel due to density-weight-circumfrence-.....blah blah blahzie bu-blah.....Not to mention the shear bullet-proof-ness/commercial-use-durabilty of an all ALLOY tool, as compared to one being made of PLASTIC. (diaphragm/sprinkler valve) Don't get me wrong.....every thing has an "application", and "sprinkler" valves have their little niche in life, but in my opinion, its NOT in the arsenal of an ARBORIST, who's gear's life span, due to wear and tear, is less than a 12 pack in my garage fridge. ;) The old adage "chain is only as strong as its weakest link" comes to play here. I for one, would NOT want to load, air-up, shoulder, aim, and then think to myself, Man, i hope this valve don't blow up in my hand. Basically, diaphragm valve is either shut or open.... Ball valve is shut, and pressure is released as FAST as you can twist the wick...and at 12# of torque, throwing open quickly GREATLY reduces accuracy of said projectile ..... Now the Butterfly valve operates the exact same way as ball valve, except the torque needed to throw open is around 2-3 #, which DRAMATICALLY reduces movement incurred if using ball valve, AND one would have the option to experiment with handle throw speed, resulting in finding that "sweet-spot" somewhere in-between "as fast as one can", (losing air escaping around throw bag), and a few milliseconds slower, (so to get optimal use of psi in chamber you had to pump up forever to achieve) Be smart-stay safe-have fun.

    That's what I would've done, had I had rings on the ends of my bridge instead of rigging plates. Holes would not accommodate snap ends of lanyard, so the snap end of lanyard went to D, and biner end went to plate, which I know NOW, isn't ever a good idea. Thanks for the tip, Sean.

    Lengthy hangs from side D's on lanyard, tight up against tie in point, result in saddle sliding up to chest, and a pucker factor of around 6. Which increases the longer you hang and realize whats going on. TRUST me.....if your new to climbing, and don't have proper training, slow and low is the way to go!!!!

    Peter...I'M thinking about going to the hardware store TODAY to get something to do the same exact thing!! Just curious.....did you ever decide on anything?? I was thinking about some corrosion resistant cable, with 2 thimble (?) on the ends....and maybe run through a piece of garden hose... I, too, want a permanent tie in point....and run some cheap, paracord style, line through it, to act as a haul-line for climb-line when ready.... Also... was thinking about some type of pulley, too. You ever come up with anything?? Thanks Stevo

    Hey all........ i have a question.......I have been gradually going up this big 'ol oak in my yard trying to get a permanent tie in point way on up there......it was estimated to be about 95-100' tall......another buddy said it looks to be a pin oak....i thought red oak, but i don't have much knowledge on trees....... Anyways...to my original question, as i was taking a break on a short climb last weekend, i was looking around, and noticed LOTS of little rows of pencil eraser sized holes in some of the bigger leads.... basically like 5-10 1/4" holes spaced about 1/2"-1" apart in horizontal rows. Anyone have any idea what would causing this? And is it harmful to the health of this big ol brute? If its harmful to tree, should i attempt to treat myself, or contact a pro? Thanks in advance.

    This is a live feed to an Eagles nest 70' up a cottonwood tree in Iowa. I've been following this pair and their chicks since the beginning. I'm noticing dad Baldy lurking around the nest and keeping a close eye on the kids.... I believe they're about to leave the nest. If anyone cares to watch and follow, here's the link to the live feed cam. http://sportsmansparadiseonline.com/Decorah_Bald_Eagle_Nest.html Have a good Holiday. Stevo

    I have a Buckingham Rebellion, and after spending a little time hanging just off the ground dialing it in to my 6'1"-230 lb.- NO HIPS or ASS-having carcass, i actually find it quite comfy for a middle of the road saddle.....as long as i don't hang for over hour or so at a time, and can get on a foothold to pull my leg loop things down every once in awhile, I'm good all day aloft. Its really a good, sturdy saddle for me, because of my lower body config. :lol: Good luck
