Soft Shackle to Re-Sling Old Cam 17-Nov-2015 At 10:54:35 AM TimP
Message
I vaguely recall that clipping direct into these cams was OK because of the 'U' shaped wire formed by the two stems and spreader bar not like single stem cams where the bend in the wire loop is more extreme under load, (if clipped direct) hence the need for the sling.

Clipping direct has advantages in aid as it gets you that tiny bit higher.

I'm interested to see if this dyneema crosses over into climbing, it seems to have revolutionised sailing rigging, but I expect the soft shackle thing only works under a consistent load like standing rigging.
