if theres rope in the system dyneema works just fine

if you need to tie em for the anchor ... use a fig 9 ... easier to untie

for skinnier slings i use 10mm BDs ... the mammut 8mm are only a few grams lighter, which if you blow your nose before the climb will be the weight savings

The 10mm slings are the best for tripling up. I like the WC 10mm best closely followed by BD

The 8mm stuff isn't as flat as the 10mm and tends to tangle more. That and it's lifespan is less

In areas where ill be doing a lot of cragging with likely TR laps I have two "TR anchor draws" setup with BW Titan slings. They're burly as all get out and hold up better to TR abuse
