good product not for me though - 04/07/2015
Reviewer: Ryan Moffenbier
Awesome product but it became a pain to use because its not midline attachable, i use a steel snap hook on the end of my rigging line instead of tying knots on every block so i took it apart and spliced it into a deadeye and added a 53k steel biner now i can move it around much more quickly as for the actual materials theyre unbeatable tenex tec and a super sexy dmm pinto rig make it well worth the money!
one fault - 10/18/2014
As per the above reviews, it works wonderfully.
Do though keep in mind that if you use spliced rigging lines, look elsewhere.
Another problem I have -is when false crotching with an attached carabiner you need to untie that connection to re-rig for your next cut, especially if the limb's diameter drastically changes.
A better choice for those circumstances would be to purchase this loopie with the Rock Exotica block which has a swivel side plate for quick and easy rope management.
Still a good solid purchase.

first block I've ever purchased and was an ease to install in tree and made quick work of the job!
very user friendly - 06/24/2014
This is a well made tool and very compact if coiled carefully. It's great on removals but it also is lightweight enough to carry while pruning for those awkward limbs over houses.

I use this set up almost every removal. Coil it nice and neat and clip it on my treeMotion threw its becket. I have felt comfortable negative blocking 100 found logs with it if I can let it run and using it as a friction saver. It's been amazing. Treestuff rocks!
