    Yeah I do t know anything about it but it went through or into like a whip it looks like. Probably another reason to use synthetic.

    Everyone should invest in a Bubba rope if you're ever going to give a tug with that kind of force.

    At least use straps with loops. No hooks, no chains. Also, make sure you're using a strap made for yanking, not towing. Jeez.

    So most people on here aren't using the hook that comes on your rope with your Warn winch? Or one of these?

    How is it possible to eliminate all hooks, shackles, etc?

    You could get rid of all shackles and hooks, but you should be fine if you take care of your gear, buy good gear, use the right gear for the job, and use your brain when doing a recovery.

    Yes. His forearm is on his head, that's his upper arm. His elbow is at the top left corner.

    That guy wasn't winching, he was tugging. They should've been using a snatch strap but weren't. It was death waiting to happen.

    Yea snatch strap and throwing a blanket/sweatshirt/something over it to prevent the violent movement when the snap occurred.

    Jesus. Just watching that kind of force on a tow strap makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up.
