Interesting video.
I think the cameraman was more nervous than the competitor.  ;D
Not sure I could ever go that slow laying out a cut to fall a tree, but then I'm not after that kind of accuracy needed in the competition.
Shows how the plunge cut works to fine-tune the hinge width.

Thanks for the video.

That's kind of like watching that Ice Road Truckers show. I always felt like they should come haul a load of wood, the couple of times I watched it ;)

yep! falling trees is a skill. falling telephone poles, I think with about a 1/2 hrs training my wife could hit the pin. now, give frenchie there a 36" white pine with a 2 degree lean and a double tassel with  uneven weighted limbs  with a cross wind and put it on the mark then ill give him some credit. then do 7 -10 of them babies completely limbed up before the skidder gets back. maybe that sounds cocky but that vid is a joke.

no offense to the original poster.

same _ i find there is always something to learn watching other people do the felling work, better or worse, often the worse cases are most interesting _  i get like a sick pleasure watching absolute fools trashing their house or car with granny holding a pull rope and the dude with the electric saw !

 I know its wrong but it facinates me how stupid they can be, and thats why i look to see every kinda error they make.... somehow its informative _ if you get what i mean.

....

on a side note heres some new hardware i put together today _ fixed / semi adjust lanyard.

Why the cable clamps? 3 strand is real easy to splice. I do it all the time for slings, lanyards, flip lines etc. When installing cable clamps make sure you have them on the correct way.

the clamps are there so I can use this in different configurations i.e. adjustable loop points. if I spliced the rope, the loop ends will be at a fixed distance and i didnt want that. the idea is to have a semi-adjustable lanyard, and/or sling tie-in point...etc

im interested to know more about the black art of splicing 4 core poly ropes ...

this is four strand _ does it make a difference, cos I havent spliced a rope this thick ? _ its 20mm multi core.

What is the shortest and longest configurations you will be using with this lanyard? One thing you could do is get a 36" ( about 1 meter ) long piece of 3/8 ( 10 mm ) Amsteel Blue. Tie it into a loop using a double fishermans knot and use this as a prusik.

thats exactly what I use in some situations ... this is not my only lanyard, just an addition, I use a variety of loops, slings, ropes, prussics etc, depending on the situation, sometimes SRT sometimes spurs etc... my plan for this new bit was to make a lanyard, but also use it as a adaptable high-point tie in...

FWIW, I don't believe that's a timed competition. What they really are judging is the physical measurements of his hinge, and face cut. Like, you tell them, i'm going to have a 10" opening in the face cut, and leave a 3\4" hinge. How close you come to that reflects your score.
But honestly, I doubt anyone is going to actually measure their cuts dropping timber out in the woods. Just a competition, a game, plain and simple.
