“Bombproof throwbag. Can't break it or get it stuck easy. No lead so weight doesn't shift when it throws, blasts through twigs, doesn't bounce weird off branches, and it's great for wrapping the line around the bag to pull out hangars. Will survive the apocalypse. 6oz weight is easy to hand throw 100+ feet accurate. WesSpur has great gear at great deals and supports local workers by selling this Bellingham made gear.”

“Small oval chain links stacked inside of a stitched sturdy canvas material. The stiffness of the throw chain allows it "stand" when pulling back through a crotch whereas a ball would get stuck. The length of the chain allows for better sight alignment with the throw. Also with the length factor allows a 10oz to throw like a 12, and the 12oz throws like a 14oz.
Also considering the construction if the cover becomes damaged you won't loose your guts, just tape it back up and keep throwing! ”
Super-strong rare earth magnets form a system to help place lines in the tree, aid in traverses, and help with duties such as hauling up chainsaws, lunch, or water. These work great with the Unbreakable Throw Weights, chain weights, or WesSpur throw weights thanks to the steel in those weights.
Each set comes with two magnets of different size and mini-carabiners for attachment to throw line.
