Thanks to encouragement from Atlanta-based arborist Mark Adams, SherrillTree is proud to present a popular variation to friction management that most simply refer to by its acronym, AFS. This one-size-fits-all, rope-friendly device can be set from the ground or within the crown. It’ll go around branches as small as your wrist up to tree trunks as large as the circumference of the entire device to be used as an anchor position for any type of climbing line. Once the climb is complete, simply tie an overhand knot in the end of your rope and reel in the entire system! Note: Connecting throwline to overhand knot will retrieve the AFS in a controlled manner.

Friction management is not just for high-end tree service companies any more, but they’re the ones who’ve embraced the tool for reasons of safety and production. Climbers with Downey Tree Service, for example, weren’t especially thrilled with the directive to utilize an AFS on every take-down, but once they realized how much safer, easier, and more comfortable the exhausting exercise became, objections subsided! Rope runs smoother, stays cleaner, and doesn’t abrade when threaded through an adjustable friction saver. Hand-spliced by the best in the business. Rope Logic utilizes high-tenacity polyester cordage and Italian-made aluminum and steel rings to provide maximum strength and safety for thousands of moves to come.

Adjustable 10' Friction Saver Adjusts From 3' to 10'

The Only friction saver that you need. Review by Tree Passion
This is the only friction saver that I have used. And it's the only one I need to have. It's super easy to use and install from the ground and super smooth on the climbing line. And easy to retrieve when done trimming. And even more enjoyable to use on removals. (Posted on 11/7/2019)
Works as advertised. Very versatile. Review by Larry
I'm a proponent of AFS so this was an easy thing for me to buy. If you're good with a throw bag, this is a simple way to improve your climb. It's extra handy for removals as it can double as an adjustable TIP while you block down a spar. Carefully consider the length you buy. This 10 footer is usually overkill for my work. Get the steel rings if you want durability. Aluminum rings can get dinged/gouged easily and it will break your heart. (Posted on 2/9/2017)
