Retriever Throw Rope Tow Tether
|A throw rope is an absolute necessity on the water. Having a rescue towline is also invaluable. The Golden Retriever is the answer to having it all in one system. This allows you to respond and act quickly, which results in safer rescues with less potential for lengthy, hazardous situations. The Golden Retriever is worn around your waist like a fanny pack. The compact size allows you to comfortably include this system in your daily paddle gear. A quick release cam buckle provides easy exit of the towing feature and fast response when releasing the throw bag. These features have allowed The Golden Retriever to quickly become the rescue system of choice among serious and professional paddlers.|
So the bag doesn't hold more than 55' of rope. The truth is, how many people can actually throw a bag more than 50'. I'm not a weak person, I can throw a football 35 yards. However, I'll be damn lucky if I can toss a rope bag more than 50 ft. I also own a 70ft 3/8" NRS bag, and I can honestly say I've never tossed it 70ft, even with an overhead side toss using my entire body. One day I decided to try to toss it to end end of rope in my yard. After about thirty tosses I quit before I really hurt my shoulder. The beauty of the bag, it's always with me. When we get out to scout, I have the bag, so we don't have to walk all the way back to top, retrieve a bag, & come back down for someone to make a run. This worked out beautifully a month ago when five of us ran a creek that none have ever seen before. Lots of scouting and bushwacking. The towing capability is probably fairly limited. I'll use it to tow, but only in water that I'm sure I can manage. I have my doubts about how easy the belt buckle can be undone under heavy load. This doesn't have the same metal clip that a real tow harness has, which makes it a cake to release the belt buckle, even under load.
