Clean Rope

I had a bit of time today so had a go at modifying my two throw lines. I much prefer the clean rope principle where the end of the throw line that you keep hold of is a clean piece of rope i.e. has no knots or tubing.

The second modification I carried out was the removal of the tubing from the bag end of the line and the reduction in the size of the loop. The idea is that the loop is big enough to clip a karabiner into but is far too small to get a hand stuck.

  1. Did he rope length increase by 2m by making this mod? 😉
    (Continuity error: The ‘After’ photo shows 20m Throwbag.

    Excuse my sense of humour – having read this article I’ve also made the same modification to my Wasel!
    Thanks,
    Marc
