15397rope vs. tree hugger
- Aug 17, 2006FYI:
Just out of curiosity I did some testing this past week. I was testing my
HH suspension rope, and comparing it to my tree huggers. I was trying to
determine if the rope would damage the tree more than the hugger. By the
end of testing I have determined the ropes caused significant damage to the
tree when compared to the huggers.
The huggers barely made any marks, where as, the ropes made several very
noticeable impressions in the tree bark. Thicker ropes would most likely
cause less damage than the thin ropes on the HH Backpacker Ultralight.
