I was wondering how hard it is to line up an Abalakov thread without a guide to help? thanks!

Hi Silas, It can be hard, but as with most things, practice is the key. To make it easier, try to look for natural features that might give you a target to aim for, or features that require much less screwing. Some large icicles for example can simply be slung, requiring no effort at all. Hope that helps, Dave
