Topic - abseiling with a single rope and a tagline

Ginger McGrath - on 11 May 2013
I was just pondering over this and wondered If anyone has any techniques/ tips?

In the past when I have Abseiled off using a tagline I have simply joined my rope and tagline by figure of 8ing them to a screw gate and as I have been abseiling off mallions I have simply relied on the large size of the screw gate jamming against the mallion, and then retriving my rope with the tag line.

I know this isnt really ideal and I was also wondering how people abseil directly off for instance an abolakov thread with a tag line set up. So what are other peoples methods for abseiling directly off tat using a tagline?
cheers.
