Does anyone make their own tree stand rope lines? What rope do you use and what diameter? I have read the rope for the pursick knot should be smaller that the main line rope. Maybe just as cheap to buy pre made life lines...
Thanks!

I make my own life lines, and yes you are correct that the prusik loop should be smaller that the main line for the sliding hitch to work properly. (70-80% size difference)

I use some 13mm static line for the main line and 9mm prusik rope for the prusik loop. These can be purchased from a number of online stores.

One of the main reason we make our on is that it gives us the flexibility for higher stands and still be able to secure the line around the tree at the top and tie on to the climbing stick at the bottom.
