UH, I thought I coverd that: I'M A KLUTZ!
Yea, I did, thru a combination of errors: I weigh 212 Lbs in my work clothes, I used OLD line that had been my "bear bag line" for about 9 years, I'M A KLUTZ (No I'm not going to explain) And, "Snapped" is not exactly what happened, "seperated the outer sheath to the point of questionable usefullness" is more accurate. So, in hind sight, new 550 cord that hasn't been exposed over & over to Hoisting heavy food bags over rough tree limbs & exposed to the sun (I left it outside, a LONG time once OK!) & had knots in it, you should be OK.
Sorry for the misslabeling
