    I would think your shoulder should be the least of your worries. I'm under the impression these daisy chains are for holding a load - not designed to withstand a fall. The guys on the RC forums beat...

    The specs for the HSS tree strap says it's only 8' long. Are you going to climb up to your stand unattached, then hook it up, and then disconnect when you climb down? Most falls occur when going up...

    I'm not sure either of those two daisy chains will sustain a fall of "bowhunter distance" - weight bearing is a lot different than fall ratings. Based on the info I got from the rock climbing forums,...

    Actually I got an email today that I sent $20 to some clown named Sofian Bin Nari - sounds like a crook to me. Paypal sent me a link to change my password and they're putting a hold on this jerk.
