Near Miss - Abseiling on tail of ropes. 4-Feb-2016 At 8:51:44 AM Dr Nick
That's the concept I mentioned way up there. I'm sure I remember reading a study which involved deliberately abseiling off the end of the rope above mats, or possibly with a separate belay. I don't think anyone managed to stop themselves with any practical security device.

The rough equivalent would be the ruler drop test. With practice you can often catch a ruler you're expecting to drop after it's fallen about 15-20 cm. With distractions, etc. you won't catch it. 30cm is about the maximum practical length of a safety backup that can be released.
