Throw Line Technique(s)

I'm trying to view throw line techniques and protection for rope from abrasion. Can't seem to find anything.

Go to amazon.com and purchase "Tree Climbers Companion". That book will cover both of those topics. Oh and welcome to the site

How long has the second edition been out?

I have the first, and it is full of great information. Weather you are new or old a great bit of information and a fun read.

I liked. G.F. Bernak Book - Fundamentals to General Tree Work another great book.

Are you looking for something like this,

http://www.wesspur.com/Friction-Save...ion-saver.html

I think on Buckingham website they show how to install them from a throwline. I know if you buy the friction saver they come with directions but it will be in the tree climbers companion.

installing a friction reducer with a throw-line from the ground can be made more simple with a rig like this. i made this at least 8 yrs ago:laugh:

Do you install it the same way any other yellow friction hitch would be?

Did you splice the metal ring in your self?

How long is it? What rope did you use?

Sorry for all the questions just looks like a possible better easier way to get a friction saver in the tree I am interested.
