Hmm
Given the background I'd be thinking Western States somewhere . .

Utah???

Spot on!

Sorry for the delayed reply. Work has been busy the last few days and it's really cutting in to my Chocky time.

*Post edit*: A biner that failed through progressive crack growth...

The filename was a bit of a red herring. It's an aluminium alloy. MAGNified ALuminium alLOY.

A broken biner! Give me your address and I'll send it to you... I'm serious, I'll even pay postage!

can you break a biner by fatigue in real life? or just tear it apart in a singular, orgasmic, overload

Possibly, if all the variables were to align at one single orgasmic moment.

Ah c'mon, I'm the one who worked out it was a microscope photo (without cheating and looking at the filename), surely thats worth half a broken biner?

Apparently you can break a biner from fatigue, but it requires many cycles at a load much greater than you'd expect from normal lead falls with dynamic rope.

Al alloy is very poor in fatigue and the only reason we don't get failures is the huge safety margin. I wonder if the new super lighweight biners are cutting into that margin?

I think it's only a matter of time until manufacturers start making carbon fibre biners. The bike industry has been doing it for years! The only hurdle will be some form of protective coating to mitigate impact damage.

I would love a few of those bike manufacturers biners .....

Shortman,

The biner is on it's way.

Sorry for the dalay, it required a bit of work (you'll understand when it gets there).

Ps. Your PM box is full.
