    Default Arborist Rigging Pistol

    Well the ARP7's just about ready for a new home up north, and the ARP8's gonna stay with me!

    I kept tellin meself aluminum Jomo, aluminum.

    But I hate aluminum! Biners rings n beer containers, they all leave a bitter aftertaste!

    Nope, another project of mine left me with a 6X12 inch plate of titanium just beggin me to build ARP8 out of it!

    And that's zactly what's gonna happen, cuz a pure titanium saltwater reel seat's only 60 bugs on eBay!

    Indestructibilty lads!

    And yes, the ARP8'll have twin triggers, so I can take wraps n fire both barrels.

    We'll have the only two ARP's in the whole world Jerr!!

    How does this device compare to a loop runner?
    Is there an estimated sale price yet?

    Good question, and it'll largely depend on which brand of saltwater bait casting reel you choose?

    Cheapo 60 bug one at Walmart, or high end Penn at 6-800 bugs?

    If the max drag setting's 25-50 lbs?

    Forget about it.....I'll stick with a couple of opposing 3/8ths ratchets!

    Prolly range somewhere between 3-500 bugs when all's said n done n tested.

    Don't really know much about heavy duty saltwater fishing reels the pro's use, but I've seen a few that cost 1.5K a pop!

    Must be a mighty nice reel for that kinda coin!

    I intend to mount the reel 90 degrees off kilter from a fishin pole.

    The reel handle will be at the top rear of the pistol.

    Pistol in left hand, reel handle to take up slack in my right hand.

    The reel I've chosen weighs 18 oz's just over a lb.

    I see the loop runner's short-fall is that you have to cut it off the loop runner, and try to guide to the drop zone, or you bear the entire weight while lifting (commonly), un-choke the limb, swing and throw it.

    As much as possibly, guiding pieces into the dropzone with a little cutting and pushing 'english' is way easier on the body.

    They say practice makes perfect.

    Two steps up a little ladder, tossing a 5 lb weight into a barrel 10-15 feet in front of you.

    Precision bombing!
