Re: Lassoing Bollards

Try the "Landing Loop" (for those of us that are not so talented).

Re: Lassoing Bollards

the trick is in how you tie the lasso - after a fair bit of trial and error the best solution i've found is to tie a small dia. bowline for the loop to run through - it will hold its shape on the throw and wont bind when pulled tight on the target. With a bit of practice you can be quite accurate.
