The Second Chance Throwbag
We designed the Second Change throwbag around the fact that cold slows you down. Cold dulls your nervous system, reducing feedback, reaction time and sensation. To this end, we used a bright throwbag, our most tactile rope, and put a Second Chance ball on the end. In addition to adding flotation, the ball is easy to grip even while wearing gloves or after cold reduces hand strength. The ball is also more easily seen than a coil of rope under all lighting conditions.
CLEAN ROPE IS A SAFETY PRACTICE THAT LEAVES OUT KNOTS WHENEVER POSSIBLE. IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PRINCIPLE, RESCUE SOURCE NO LONGER KNOTS THE HELD-END OF OUR THROWBAG ROPES.
