    Very expensive for overkill.

    Unless I misunderstand a 120cm 10mm dynex runner is 240 cm long in actual strap length IE 94"

    $15 and about 1.3 oz.

    don't think you're saving any weight there just because it's dyneema...because it's way stronger then you need. you should find 2000 LB polyester to be lighter weight per length, and since it's much wider it does it's job of protecting the tree better as well

    8' tree straps from most vendors is around $7-8 per pair and still only about 3.4 oz per pair.

    I was just curious.

    Needs to be thinner and wider and
    rated to 2000. Rated at 2000# they would probably weigh an ounce for two tree straps.

    i think they'll weigh more than that, but should still weigh less per foot than the dyneema runners
