Risks of soft shackles in highline rigs

Risks of soft shackles in highline rigs

We did some tests and found an interesting result when we tested a sewn loop on a soft shackle. * Used webbing: raed Helium (MBS 24 kN), 6mm Soft Shackle (MBS 42 kN) * the webbing broke at 14,9 kN - nearly 10 kN below the original MBS Our conclusions: * smaller diameter vs bigger diameter significantly reduces the MBS even in "static" situations * There are things about soft connections that we don't know about in total yet. * We wouldn't recommend the use of soft connections for highline rigs in this form. * We will put much more research into this in the future. Stay safe and keep the balance
