    Two years on the same set no sign of fraying or wear. Very solid, made of poly so no/little stretch.
    That's what I use. Great bargain for $4, and they work well. I also use them (with metal parts) to secure kayaks.

    Gary at strap works can make you anything to order...
    He is amazing!!

    He did some 1" to 2" back to 1" conversions that were the cat's meow.

    seemed to me to be static things.
    In physical terms, I move through them;
    yet in metaphysical ones,
    they seem to move through me. -

    About par with the super light Dyneema suspensions. I'd go over to Gary at:

    and see what he can do. ;-)
