I often use a maasdam rope puller to help with back leaners and side leaners and wherever else I need a mechanical advantage. I have my rope puller set up with 30' of rope rather than using it directly on the rigging lines. When setting up a pull line or a safety line with tension I sometimes use a farmers loop on the pull line to hook into the rope puller and sometimes use a 1/2 rigging prussic with 6-8 wraps. The prussic makes it super easy to adjust the location of the anchor on the pull line to get maximum pull length. I've watched a bunch of Richards videos of him breaking gear and it got me wondering, which is stronger, the prussic or the farmers loop? I realize that the rope puller is the weakest link in the system with only a 1500# rating, and there is no way me just cranking on the handle can overload anypart of the system. So I'm pretty confident neither the loop or prussic will fail, but am still kinda curious which would fail first when put to the test?
