I almost always use a tagline with a comealong to fell large tops, sections or whole trees. Has anyone done any studies on how much recoil there is with that kind of tension? I wonder, because when I have a side lean it seems to take some or all of the natural felling direction away and the tree follows my notch differently depending on how much tension, which rope, tree species, hinge style (wedge or 150% rule) etc. that I use. Anyone heard of this?
