i also agree that the SRL should be strong enough to handle loads, which is why i have an amsteel ASRL and not a dyneema. will dyna hold me? probably, but its that "probably" that worries me, and its not worth the weight "savings" to use it and not have the peace of mind.
i just dont agree that the SRL should be relied upon to get the perfect hang. not saying that every situation should will be 30, but if you can get it as close as possible to that then youll be better off all around.
