    Just picked up a 2011 Guidos Web, I'm trying to figure out what's new on the latest tree tether. Prior to getting it I assumed I'd goto a rope setup with with prusiks knot but now I'm confused.

    FYI: I'm new to saddles and bridge vs tether is a bit confusing. My setup now has 3 carabiners. Two on each hip side that connects to the tether which is wrapped around the tree and has its own carabiner.

    Are you asking what the newer gw provided tether is like or what people are building for themselves?

    Did you find the answer you needed? I let this thread slip. I don't have the net gw tether to compare to, but I can take pictures of my diy system.

    I'd like to see the DIY system if you don't mind.

    Yep, It's pretty simple, just a rope with a carabiner and ropeman on the tether and a runner for the bridge. [​IMG][​IMG]

    I did pretty much the same thing, I just cut the stock tree strap off the bridge.

    Awesome, thanks!

    What does the rest of the tether/rope look like around the tree?

    I'm new to this, sorry for all the questions.

    It's just a loop in the rope with the end going around the tree and then cinched tight. I looked and unfortunately don't have a picture of that, but I'm sure someone does, and I can take one for you in the morning.

    I think I found what I was looking for.

    What kind of knot is used for the loop?
