If you're making an Ultra Sling you'll find the middle of the sling as he does in the video and work from there. If it's a regular sling with the rings at the end then it takes a little planning and measuring so the tail has enough to brummel and bury.
Mine too, I still got some that Nick made for me in 05, and they’d still probably pass anyone’s gear inspection, I just don’t climb on them anymore because of their age. They definitely got some mileage, but this stuff is so durable and resists glazing like nothing I’ve used before.
A little lump at the one bury, but otherwise looks good so far. Now to see if I can follow the whip lock instructions
Yes I got a bunch of new 3/8” SB already, lots of bits show up in Wesspur’s clearance section, but thanks! This stuff is kinda a bitch to pull the core out of... the core and cover are the exact same color.
I used the Vergo some with a piece of 10mm Sterling WorkPro, it’s really nice. A bit smaller size and capacity, but otherwise functions exactly like the Cinch. I like it. I haven’t tried yet, but I think it might work ok with 11mm even if it’s a bit bigger than one is supposed to use with it.
Back in the heavy logging days, say 1945 to 1995, that sort of work was an every day thing in hundreds of logging gear/chainsaw shops all along the Cascade mountain chain, both west and east sides, from northern California to British Columbia.
Days long gone now. Hard to find a shop still employing anyone with the knowledge, equipment, and physical ability, these days.
Some big ol eye and eye going on there. That one dude holding the rag at the bottom of the clevis bell while the hot lead is being poured, thats trust man. Gotta be a big boy bending that kind of rope.
