/ improving on a purcell prussic
not completely static since the knot will slip (in theory better if i slip if there is slack).
can be untied and/or cut to serve as tat for whatever other use
however there is the odd time i wish it could do one more thing for me
one handed adjustability. this is only possible when lengthening... the second it becomes too long, a second hand is needed to shorten it
So the question/challenge to you guys is this:
is there a way to make a purcell (or any other tether system) one hand adjustable?
I know something like a metolius easy daisy could be used for this... but not sure id be trusting that as my single point of attachment
Purcell Prusik - there, improved it.
i girth hitch to the tie in points
i also have that loop at the end -- the purpose i see out of it seems to be to make sure the prussik does now slide through when no it use. i dont see any real negatives that would come from not having it -- i could be wrong.
i have seen purcells tied with 2 pieces of cord with 2 prussics that allowed for a lot of adjustability -- looked like a faff to me
