    Throw line technique/ gear makes hanging a floating pulley fast and easy. I should do this more often.

    I'm with this guy ^
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    I think it will have the same success as that metal throwball dildo thing.

    Would have been a better seller if he included the batteries

    I wouldn't be so harsh on him guys. I ruined my hands with saw, treework and probably cutting/chucking to much to heavy just as described. I know myself espescially when bucket babying it would regularly push the limits of my grip. 50lbs? No problem. I've felt the strains and twists just as Jomo described. If it came to market and wasn't a pita to use I might of tried it.

    A handsaw handle, grip-pliers, zip-ties and a length of 1/4 inch cable's all it takes to slap one together and give it a whirl.

    I recommend wearing gloves and long sleeves, because when released under load, that cable slaps back.

    But you shouldn't try it if yu ain't a climber.....
