Climbing and highlining the Totempole HD 11-Apr-2013 At 5:09:58 PM sliamese

this is what people use for highlines, not whats in those tests generally. comparing apples with oranges aint too good...

found that, WLL of 13.4kN suggests anchors with ultimate design load of 65kn. I remember one of my friends lines was theoretically loaded to 10kN, over a 40m distance. looks to me like their testing nylon lines(cheap, for use in parks) not the longer polyester lines that a pulled much tighter.

I can show you a bent U on hobarts Organ pipes, didn't the missing link anchors get bent also? Hence my suggestion of 2xM16 studs or 3 x M12.

But your right in that your doing well to break them, and thats what the ropes for. I've only broken one tube-tape line that had 4 people on it.
