    This is so great and easy to use very pleased

  2. Jared Johnson

    This is a must to have with your set-up! It makes adjustments super simple with just one hand.

  3. (verified owner)

    so so so much better than a prusik knot in my opinion. Prusik knot does work but this really takes the hassle out of tightening or loosening slack on a tether. I would highly recommend having this with your set up.

  4. Brittany Fogle

    Highly recommend this product to anyone not using one at least on their lineman rope! I only got one with my initial purchase but I will be getting a second one for my tether! super easy quiet one hand adjustments!

    I bought a Lineman 1 to use on the Tethrd brand 8mm lineman rope. I was told by someone that it may not work on the 8mm because the ropeman 1 shows specs for 10-13 mm. It had plenty of bite and zero slippage, with plenty of teeth left on the cam. I did a video demonstration on YouTube if you’d like to see the bite it had on the Tethrd 8 mm lineman rope and Tethrd carabiner..
