    Yeah I'm gonna have to copy that on my next one. We need some pics of some of Gerry's homemade ones, he has some really cool ones in fundamentals. I think he gave the super cool looking one to Gary Storrick if i remember right, who has one of the coolest websites in history i might add.

    IMHO. I wouldn't paint a POW. Rope might stick to it.

    I thought about that.... I might take your advice and leave it raw, but it just wouldn't fit in with all the other shiny bits and pieces.

    Here you go Stig, a collection of rope working gear, from caving to trees, by Gary Storrick. I nerded out on this website all the time, and learned so much there.

    Coool Site. Ill have to explore it more later. Stehanson fabbed up 3 for more in different sizes. Yours looks great buddy!. My welding skills ain't quit up to it yet. Too rough. Steve painted mine, paint just rubs off...
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    Storrick's site is a great resource, for sure. Has been for old school SRT and rappellers for a couple of decades. He's a caver.

    Take it to a gun smith that uses Cerakote. That stuff is amazing when it comes to abrasion resistance. http://youtu.be/ksj-XJzVQik
    That which does not kill you...usually makes you wish it did.
