Guido's web

Post by TN hunter on Tue Aug 07, 2012 12:07 pm

First topic message reminder :

Well I just got off the phone with Mr. Palasini, and I finally ordered a web. As soon as it comes in I will take pictures of it and my set up (modified) and post them. I'm excited to be a bit more lite and much quieter.

I used a combo of both LW sticks and screw in steps. I used 3 sticks and 3 or 4 steps to get to the hight I would want, a little bit of work but not to bad takes 15 to 20 min. Thinking about just getting a fourth stick.

I have around 10 trees set up with pull lines. I have no problem getting set up and ready to shoot 5-10 minutes after reaching my tree.....5 minutes if I already set the rope earlier. If I have to carry a rope, it's about 2 lbs added. Then I just have a hand ascender, foot loop, pulley, carabiner, and a Petzl Rig. I can't imagine an easier, less strenuous, quieter method. Not the lightest....but way lighter than my climber and so much easier and more adaptive to different trees.

Does anyone have any experience using the q safe anchor and strap from blinded hunter with the web. Moving the strap that comes with it is a pain in the ?ss. I would use the rope you guys do but do not under stand what the prusik knot does. Why cant you just use a rope with figure 8 loops in each end and girth hitch that?

You can certainly just use the rope. The prussic knot is for fast adjustment - if you want to be a little higher slide the prussic up the mainline & vice versa to be lower.

cbigbear you sir are a wealth of knowledge. Well I have tried the q safe and am not 100% sold on it. I have been using it in the backyard and at low height and the stitching isn't all that hot. I believe im going to go with the rope prusik combo.

Is there anyone that makes the prusik not and rope modification? Would like to buy it and use it instead of the strap the Web came with.

Muddy outdoors and Lone Wolf makes a rope with the prusik . they call it a "lineman's rope". Could someone confirm it is the same as the rope that people are using to hang their guido's. Then you would need to find a good bridge material and you would be set.

I found the Lone Wolf Lineman's Rope on Sportsmans Guide and it looks like a great option. However, I also found the Lone Wolf Safety Line which looks like the same set up only and long tag end, 30 feet in all, I was wondering if this would be a good option? I was thinking if I hunted one evening and planned on going to the same tree in the morning I could leave the Safety Line on the tree and it be waiting on me in the morning, and it would already be in the position I needed it to be. I plan on using the climbing rope method that Dave used in his review of the Guidos Web. I am worried if the Safety Line is made as stout as the Lineman's Rope. Any opinions welcome!

Whisper and others using SRT climbing. I don't yet have a web, but the micro frog ascent setup is appealing to me (now middle aged & 280lbs+) but I'm wondering if it's possible (& safe) with the web's harness design. See http://youtu.be/8SpQ1AC0Ikw . It seems this method would be less strenuous for me. I realize I'd need a separate rappel device with this technique (which I already have from my rock climbing days in my youth). Any feedback appreciated.

Bryan,
Ya never know for sure until you try it. It just seems a lot more complicated to set up than what I am using and the switch over is just a killer for me. Really the Rads/Yo-yo is not taxing at all. I mean, you can climb the tree anyway you want and then hook up to a separate cinch, but that defeats the purpose of easy in and out. Looks like you would need a kroll and a foot ascender and I don't see it being that compatible with the harness.

Thanks for the feedback Otto. I have an older Grigri (early 1990's) from my rock days. I think I've heard the design has evolved a bit since then. If I try out a yo-yo setup using the Grigri at first to save some money, anything to look out for (other than keeping it weighted as you already mentioned early in the thread)?

This thread is old but I'm going to revive it. I think I'm going to use either four sticks, the one stick method, or a hand climber top. I will keep you up-to-date.

How many of you are still using the Web after using it for a few years?
