I have some gigs in the future where I have ample amounts of ceiling (25+ feet) and I'd like to rig my lyra at the top with silks hanging from the bottom of the lyra (with the silks in a lark's head/cow hitch).
My only concern is, since I don't ever see aerialists doing that, is it safe? I have a single point, solid aluminum, 35" lyra. I know it can hold my weight and withstand the moves I do, but will it be safe if I do a drop on the silks? Comments, advice, experiences are welcome!
