I must say, I'm pretty impressed. I just had the cheap "spider web" for lack of a better term - that's what it feels like you're against when trying to figure it out. I was considering HSS, but when I picked one up, I thought there must be a better option. It's a no-brainer to put on, and it comes with the linesman's rope, too. That was a little confusing, but I think I got it figured out. I'll have to try it on a tree (ground level) to make sure I got it right. Quality stuff!
