The SHERRILLtree splicing pros have taken the versatility and functionality of the whoopie and combined it with the same traits of the unique X-Rigging ring. Adjustable from 3 to 5 feet, the X-Rigging ring whoopie sling can go from ground level diameters to the crown in your rigging systems. Redirect lines out of the way, vary block angles, and redirect forces—all with the ease and speed only a whoopie sling can provide.
Brought to the tree industry by J. David Driver, the X-Man, the X-Rigging rings are simple in concept, brilliant in function. The rings are made with milled aluminum, then hard-coat anodized, and then polished–making them strong, durable and low friction. Spliced in-house by SHERRILLtree with Tenex by Samson for reliability and quality you can count on.
The uses for rigging applications are many. Redirect, fair lead, speedline, you name it. The possibilities are as varied as the guys and gals removing trees!
Perhaps its best property is the most subtle one—through the use of strategically placed X-Rigging rings, riggers aloft can devise rigging systems that work with the tree’s natural strength and structure. Rope and rope angles can be managed in and around the tree, in and out of blocks and other rigging points. Weak points can be strengthened or avoided. Loads can be placed in compression on the tree, and trees can be removed safely and effectively. X-Rigging slings now available with the XL Beast Ring for increased friction, and increased bend radius.
