We test zepplin vs modified zepplin knots. We test 40 year old pit rope with new pit rope. And we test soft shackles as lightweight anchor connectors.
John Fioroni from Cave Exploration sent us some zeplin knots to test and the soft shackles. Get 5% off at https://www.caveexploration.org/gear if you use the discount code HOWNOT2. (using code also helps out the channel)
Ethan and Ian Reuter sent the Pit Rope. See Ethan's Instagram! https://www.instagram.com/ethan_reute...
Spoiler alert, both zeplin knots are bomber, 40 year old rope broke at 50% of the new rope, and only 6mm soft shackles are big enough to use as connectors if the hanger has a rounded edge!
