Ok. Glad dude is ok albeit banged up. But gear inspection by a qualified person could have saved this dude all this pain. No way that bridge should be in service. It is 10 years old minimum. Lordy. Bridges are easy to inspect....feel its length for diameter change, and any lumps. Never ever use self abraiding materials for a bridge....like technora or aramids. That cougar bridge recall is 11 years ago. That harness should have been destroyed 6 years ago. Damn I wear out a TM every 2 years..in that time I change a bridge 4 to 6 times.
