I want to wish Logrite a very Merry Christmas.
Seem like you guys are always there with a gift to help out a contest on the FF. And you have made up a contest to give things away. Thanks for stepping up to the plate.
Looking forward to seeing you in Bangor,ME next year.     logrite_cool

Ray - thanks for the sentiment.

We do it because we think of FF members as our family. 

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Maybe this year you can come down to our Open House. ;)

Logrite rules!  Thanks for what you do.

By the way, best cant hooks I've ever used.  :)

How about a pickaroon/hookaroon with a D handle on the end for dragging timber around on the ground?

Do you want a pulp hook with a handle?

I'm not sure.  I use the 30" hookaroon a lot for dragging timber around in the woodlot.  If I had a nice D handle on the end of it, my arthritis wouldn't hurt near as bad from having to hang on to the hookaroon as hard.  I know I'm mis-using that hookaroon but it's just so handy to stab and drag stuff!  And it's held up to alot, I must say.  I'm 6'2" and weigh around 270 so I can lean into her pretty good, at least for a little while till my hands and back quit working.

I've never used a pulp hook.  Not for timber, at least, only for hay bales a little back in the day to see if I liked it.  I preferred use using the twine.

I'm needing something that I don't have to lean down to use, that I can swing-stab a log and drag it around and be able to hang on easier without just relying on a squeeze grip.  Do you have any suggestions for this?  I have a pair of timber tongs that are quite handy but I have to bend over every time to use them.  I know this sounds like a pansy-ish thing to say (about the bending over), but I have degenerative spine disease.  The less bending, the better off I am.  :)
