Sorry Dane, just saw your question. Mainly for the reasons you and Iceman cite. At the time, I don't believe the newer Grivel tethers were available in the US and the ones available over the web from Europe didn't come with 'biners. Now that they are/do, I'd probably just go with the Grivel tethers. Kevin Craig

Nope..On every commercial system the nylon is the weak link..under 800 lbs per strand on all of them.
