    Very strongly
    Have a happy life with no regrets, and live long enough to be a burden to your kids.

    Pictures.... Took less than two minutes to rig.


    First time I've used crabs with this setup, does add speed and saves wear. I can use the quick release knots at the crab or at the ring for drip lines if needed.

    Tape either end means a reminder of distance for MY perfect sag distance.

    Sheppie matt for insulation and lush lay ;-)

    Solid ridge means I can pull misen up, hang torch, beer, whatever :thumbup: the clove hitches mean I can set and saves the sag, rings, mean mechanical advantage for tension.

    The cloves tend to bite due to the dyneema having a core, upside is I have the same sag wether I have the huggers taught horizontal or at an angle. Win win as far as I'm concerned..
    I may be tempted to try the toggle mod though???.
