Ok so I knows it's rigging but I just want to know:
Does anyone use knuckle busters?
soft goods. I think they are a good thing to help keep even an expirenced operator form accidently bringing in a unit to far, that could do some damage. Yes, proper traning and safety procedures are very important when operating a fly system, but a knuckle buster can offer a cheap bit of extra insurance is many cases.
spike tape to mark the proper height and practiced getting it right on.
purchase knuckle-busters anymore? I thought there was an issue with over tightening and rope fatigue.
BMI Supply I know for sure. Just like anything else, you have to install them correctly for them to be effective, and not damage your gear. The same overtightening can be said for rope lock on a fly rail if the cams are adjusted to tightly.
knuckle busters in the past...but usually only when the situation is one where there would be more damage or death if the line comes in past that point. For general cue spiking I prefer just using tape and keeping an eye out. Knuckle busters are definitely not for amateur use.
