Actually by a committee which is formed by many persons from varying industry sectors. Also, the marker requirements are in line with relevant overseas best practice. Some countries recommend a marker tape denoting Use For Life Safety or Use For Throwline etc. Makes sense when it comes to inspection logs where the inspector may not necessarily be the user.
I agree HTP is great for minimising stretch, but as with all things, there are trade-offs. Unfortunately it will always be a case of "horses for courses" and as usual a thorough RA is a must.

Indeed. Great device.

I was originally just pointing out that Aussie made still exists. Features and benefits of products can be debated until the cows come home. And Chockstone is probably not the forum for this in regards to professional gear. :)

Happy to discuss via PM or email. Opportunities to learn are always exciting. :)

*EDIT* Just had another look at Sterling HTP. Not the rope I was thinking of earlier in this post. So may have to re-look at it at some stage.
*EDIT2* Still happy with rope thoughts re HTP advantages and disadvantages.
