Bellrope adjustment round 2

Several ringers have tested the new height of the 2’s rope and so far the consensus is:

  • The height of the sally is fine.
  • The tail is too long (except for our shortest ringers, for whom it is only a little longer than the minimum).

There was a certain amount of sentiment expressed in favor of shortening the tail substantially, even if it forces our shorter ringers to use a box.  We’ll see.

Over the next several days When the humid weather ends and the ropes are less stiff, I’ll retuck the tail to be several inches shorter, and we’ll try again.
