Drew Bristow is a great advocate for the Treemagineers Hitch Climber System. So much so, he suggested Treetools add Tachyon to the tree climbing stock list, back in July, to complement the Hitch Climber and Ultra Os we already sold. At the time it appeared to us that New Zealand arborists (and recreational tree climbers) were already well catered for on the rope front - with suppliers like Standens, Levin and Ultra Ropes selling Donahys, Yale and Samson respectively.
But Tachyon was not represented in New Zealand so we considered it to be worth a punt. Turns out Drew was right - our first shipment has almost sold out. We have some 40 metre lengths still available spliced by Andy Benson, New Zealand's leading rope splicer. Next shipment is due in three weeks - ready for the Treetools demo day on September 19 in Hamilton, Ferry Bank Park off Grantham Street - the same day and location as the Waikato/BoP Regional TCC's.
