No clamp at 12lbs. That is excellent stuff Ike. Really. I am regularly hanging 12.5 - 15 lbs with the Wench these days and feel the need for the clamp at all times. But I’m only using a 10” strip of Theraband as a wrap. Maybe adding the No Hurt tape will make a difference.
If I’m not mistaken it looks as if the pic of your Wench shows a shorter cylinder— is this the 1 1/2” version Wench? If so, how do you like it - what difference does it make for you?
I have totally neglected to look into the “No-Hurt” tape but keep meaning to. That makes two things to pick up at the drug store. Three if you count the bubble-gum.
