This was fun to make
I think we all panic a little bit when we see a tiny Nick but I always just relied on the. If its 7000 lb mbs divided by 24 strands..two strands it's still 600lbs ..( idk if mbs is the right term)As I commented on the video, I only would've done it with two safety to prevent that swing with the knife in the hand.
Other than that, great test, the results were what I was expecting, although I still panick if I see a tiny little nick in my rope...
Doing it two feet of the ground wouldn't of been as fun for me .That would have been a lot easier to watch if you had been two feet off the ground, and the demo would have been just as informative.
I don't worry much about the rope breaking on my 3:1, but having a damaged area get jammed in the ZZ or a pulley is a real concern.
How did you even notice that open carabiner, because all I can see is that HUGE orange appendage Travor is sportin'... Dudes packing some serious heat....
