How are you getting on with the figure eight climbing descender as a Boom brake?
I have mine on the main-sheet boom bail and have tied the rope to the port and starboard stanchions bases, but I can't get to work properly on my boom....
The boom was swinging too quickly at first so I double wrapped the rope on each side of the larger Figure Eight hole .....
....but it still doesn't work well for me.
Getting the line tension right is difficult and I have to adjust it every time the main-sheet is adjusted.
The left/right rope tension also changes as the boom swing from port to starboard (and back).
