I use it to lash the top axel of my bow to my Switchblade. It does the job and is a quick on/off on the ground or in the treestand. It is longer than I expected, which occasionally allows the bow to swing (like a door) away from my pack. If I was going further than my 200yd to my stand, I'd probably do 2 or 3 loops around my axel to shorten it up. But like I said, it does the job and definitely makes my life easier 25' up a tree.
