I hate bagging anyone, but Nevin needs to pull these ropes before someone gets really hurt. They fail under the heat shrink tubing with the length measurements. Pretty sure they heat the rope up too much. Had one break on us last weekend first run out. It broke on the first hard edge out. If it broke at the wrong time it could cause a pretty solid injury. <BR>

I had one break where the loop was sewn. The threads came out, but the knot held, so there was just a short jolt, but not a complete failure. Just got it (and the handle) replaced under warranty, but have not used the new one yet. They seem like good lines, and most are made from the same or similar spectra. I used it for a couple months w/o a problem.
