ive never done rope training so I cant comment on it other than if that was my bird she would probs smash me in the face after a while!! the video quality is better if you select the cog at the bottom right of screen and select 720p HD

It could be the set I picked on the go pro as I picked the 720p on it as the other clips are done on the 1020p .i just can't have her sitting up doing nothing so the rope come in handy for the fitness.

im not disagreeing with you, each to their own, I fly in our winds here, I say our as yours looks like the hilly dales which I know can be windy up their, not sure where your from, I flew up the peak last sunday as it was windy my bird hit a rabbit and ended up rolling 10/15 yards past the point of impact as she had the wind up her arse!!

In from northern Ireland and the ground I fly are mostly hilly ground or beside the seaside and the wind is that strong at times the bird just lays down on the glove and sometimes she'll not leave the glove.and I'm nearly 17 stone and the wind blows me about and sometimes knocks me off my feet.as 37 mph winds can blow a tree over and a bird is far lighter at blow them back a good bit or even if she fights the wind wrong could end up with a broken wing.

What type of rope are you using Sean.i no a lad who rope trains his gos but first rope he used absorbed a lot of water from of the wet grass causing a lot of tension on the birds legs.the bird could pull the rope 100 yards easy but then when it was wet it struggled noticeably ..atb

Hi its 8mm para cord as it absorbs water to which is better for the bird to pull the extra weight up the field to build up the muscle.as you can see in the clip I pull the cord behind her then she pulls it up the whole way up the field.as I showed a mate the clip and told me to put the cord in front of her and then she will get up to full power and then will start to pull the rope better up the field.

well here is the clip from last nites lamping the second flight was at a hare and she didn't like it and threw up after the hare lifted,and some other flights are at some rabbits long distance at least 300yards away as there lamp shy as hell .and the last flight is the one she caught in the pic.
