Ok, so I ahve been messing around with some Amsteel 7/64 and made some whoopie slings, some soft shackles and some nacrabiners. It is kinda fin to mess around with this line and create gear.

My question is though, when would one choose a nacrabiner over a softshackle and vice versa?

They seem to do the same thing. Or am I missing the point entirely? Wouldn't be the fist time - won't be the last if I were.
