    Some species hinge nicely and can give you a nice swing, but others are just like Pop!
    With some others, you can't tell as it can vary greatly from limb to limb, like the weeping willow.

    I think that the groundy didn't let it run at all. The rope's length seems just the size of the side reach of the limb.
    First drop is tensioning the rope, then horizontal swing until the butt jumps...

    It should doesn't have to, but it does for me.
    The worse is when using the chainsaw. Once, topping a dead black locust, I ended hanging by my chainsaw's handle stayed in the cut. I had my lanyard...

    The butt tie would have prevented some part of the big swing and the close call, if he had it effectively tied back just under the cut. With a butt leash, the big log never could have turn around the...

    Yes for the first but not so much for the second in my opinion. The main problem is that he wants to go too quick in his learning and handles some jobs too hard/difficult for his knowledge. That's...

    Learning and training.
    The both are mandatory to begin to feel confident. At this time, you and your body have no idea how to climb properly and efficiently. That's normal, nobody can run in the...

    Only when needed.
    There are a lot of two-handing in the same tree. Do what suits the moment.

    Yes, I was completely out of the root flare.
    The grain seemed straight to me, but it was cut by boring and not split though. So it's difficult to be sure.

    I tried the block face a few time on some small deciduous trees to test the enhanced folding capability, but I wasn't enthusiast with the results due to a collateral effect:
    Each time, I got...

    I admit that's better to have it clipped at the saddle when it's time to take a ride after a cut.

    I prefer the saw far from me, not in my legs, not in the space visited by my hands. It's less bulky on the saddle to go throw the limbs.

    That's it, the lean, the lay and the notch "look "all to the same point. I just verified in the Dent's book, page 103.
