Just of of curiosity Chomps, is that the same as a ratchet tie down?
If not, what's the diff? Thicker strap for walkin' on?
It is basically a ratchet tie down but,.. The ratchet & strap are heavier duty. The strap is wider and both are rated at 4 tons
tension. Also the ratchet handle is bigger to get the leverage to tension it and locks to keep the whole thing from coming undone while you're on it.
I'm not sure a regular cargo type tie down would hold up. (unless we're talking like Big Rig cargo tiedowns maybe!) If you know exactly
what you're doing, you could probably rig a Do-it yourself slack line, but I think you'd be taking a bigger risk of having it fail & hurt you!
If you give a fuck about your trees........don't leave it set up. I tore my toenail on my bigtoe completely off, comin' off the line. Pretty funny with the "nut shot"......I did the same thing.......immediately lowered the line.
Thanks, I was aware that leaving the line set up would damage the trees! It's easy enough to set up & take down, so no need to risk them by leaving it up! OUCH
!!! ...the toenail thing sounds painful! I'll have to clip the talons before I do this again! (...I'm seriously considering a "Cup" too!!)
If I'd set it up Two inches higher, I think I might have wound up Neutered!!!!
I started in Tennis shoes but the grass & ground were wet & shoes kept slipping off the webbing, so that's when I went for it barefoot!
Kept at it for about 2 hours this morning going in 10-15 min. sets, with time in between to sit and sweat & wheeze
Man!! I'm Sore tonight!!!!
