This one is pretty nifty too...


Nice and compact and lightweight and once the rope is snagged its captured.

Kinda spendy...but would be ideal for connecting two lines across a river.

Every year, the Mazama mountaineering club has a used equipment sale. I always pick up a bunch of 'biners, a few choks, and a 150' or two of [email protected] 9mm static line. When the climbers are through with their rope, they sell it cheap. Great Christmas gifts! And if you've ever had a hundred feet or so of dynamic line and hardware come back through your cluster, you'll understand why static line is called for! Low-tech hack: A couple of weighted safety bags (or reasonable facsimile) hung out on the line before you tension it will soften the potential whip and slow the flying hardware.
