    I think the biggest benefit is running the winch on the first layers of rope which gives its rated capacity.

    Very clever indeed. I have been caught with winching and the extension ropes and straps leave the pulling capacity at its limit, so being able to trim it as shown is a plus for me. The device is expensive for what it ultimately is, however there has been a bit of thought and development time expended, so thats a direct cost.

    Does look a great piece of easy lightweight gear Philstar
    Did only briefly notice on Muddy’s kind Youtubey link that the blokes extension rope appeared to have protective sheathing every few metres (yanky yards :-) that he was matching up both ways back to itself before final lashing through?
    Wondering if they’re just loose sheaths like our hook ends held in place or he’s somehow got them affixed properly at intervals along the extension rope?
    They could just simply slide along I guess much like a ratchet strap sharper load edge sheath maybe?

    Recovery - The Fundamentals

    Whoops, played it again, this time zoomy’d in on iPhoney little screen. Think that’s multicoloured nuffy MB unbeknown rope now not sheathing Philstar?

    Mark, the various ways to rig this device are all done with clean rope, no sheaths. I didn't pick that up about the rope sheath, however did ask for a download, which he sent me of the various configs about 2 weeks ago. Its even possible to double rig this device like a capstan winch as an aux anchor, like say you wanted a second line hooked to the vehicle in case a single line was not going to quite get you there, - very interesting concept. I had to use a similar set-up getting out of my bush camp block when decending a steepish off slope graded clay hill. We rigged ropes on front and rear recovery points and back to tress, then the guys kept the tension on the ropes front and rear as I slowly decended, all the time inching into the high side bank. This device could also be used for that. I particularly like the simple extension rope shortening function as my ropes are all 40 and 50m long.
