rap ring and maillon testing 15-Dec-2015 At 1:47:45 PM mikllaw
Neil Gledhill pulled a bunch of ickey gear off climbs in WA which I'm testing this arvo:-

L to R they are
- an unbranded, unrated 5 mm maillon, 316 stainless. <13 kN>
- a rolled aluminium rap ring (( ) says “The rolled aluminum ones do have a strength rating (SMC Rap Ring = 3400 lb or 15kn NEW)” <14 kN>
- a 6 mm stainless rap ring with a poor weld <15 kN>
- a 6 mm galv ring with a weld with significant undercut <14 kN>
- two 4mm stainless rap rings, that are probably strong, but look like they came off a dog's collar. Used on a lower-off <13 kN>

< this is my guess>
