Location: Dyneema sling failure under...

Comments: I don't know if this was covered in any of the other post, as I just skimmed over them but dyneema is far more susceptible to degradation due to sunlight than a regular nylon sling, and having sat outside for a year could certainly weaken the sling to a catastrophic point. I'm not sure why everyone seems to be overlooking this fact.
