Throw lines and throw weights are used by tree surgeons to secure ropes high up in trees from the ground.
We have a range of Weaver weights – 8oz, 12oz and 16oz. Weaver Arborist are renowned for the design and quality of their products. The bags are made from hard wearing Cordura material with strong stitching. The aerodynamic design increases the range and accuracy of the throw. The motion of the shot that the weights are filled with means that they are less likely to get caught in tree branches.
Our lightweight polyethylene throw lines range from 1.75mm to 3mm diameters. The kernmantle construction of our 3mm x 50m throw line offers optimal flexibility, strength and durability. All of our throw lines are perfect for positioning heavier ropes, they all have low levels of stretch and high breaking strains. They come in high visibility fleck colours to help position ropes effectively.
We have a range of throw line accessories including three different styles of storage bags by Weaver and climbing hardware specialist, Edelrid. Our collapsible storage cube has a capacity of 41cm x 41cm, it folds down compactly and springs open to form an open top, self supporting container.
The Big Shot Catapult helps arborists accurately position ropes into higher positions with a range of over 100m. The catapult comes with 2 x 1.2m length poles and a catapult head. We also carry replacement heads that fit the fibreglass extension poles.
