Topic - Reslinging DMM Mambas?

cuppatea on 08 Jan 2013
I seem to be on a roll with the silly questions so here's another one to test your brains!

How should I go about putting some new slings on some old but worthy DMM Mambas?

DMM won't resling anything over 10 years old, but they are too shiny to be in a museum and deserve to be used and scratched, maybe even fallen on...
That's fated well and truly tempted.

Can I tie tape in a double fisherman's knot, or is that the kind of thing that would make the Americans gleefully shout "Yer Gonna DIEEEEEE"?

I've had a browse around the Chris Tan website but he only mentions cams..

..which I'm plucking up the courage to do.

Part of me thinks that if the double fisherman's knot is too dangerous for CT then it's a crazy idea.

The easiest would be a larks foot, but I'm not convinced the sling would sit right on the end of the krab.

Thanks in advance for any wisdom :-)
