This is the first time I will have used them. I put one on each of my ladder stands. Really looking forward to hooking up to these before I climb up in the stand. Frequently have 2 people in a stand at the same time, so with them being a double hook up, both people can be securely rigged in case of a fall. The reflective strands in the rope will be very useful in finding the stand in the wee hours before it starts to get light.
