BD published some tests from their lab about a year ago that suggested that steel hooks with grooves in them are not significantly weaker than new ones, because the groove helps to keep the pull inline with the major axis. Apr 2, 2015

Let me just say, as someone who lives in Bishop, I would much rather replace a couple of mussy's, than carry out someone who is injured or dead. Everything wears out eventually, so one of the reasons we've adopted the mussy system is that they're much easier to replace when they need it. If you're going to run toprope laps on a route, please use your own draws. However, if you are the last one on the route, or cleaning on the way down, by all means clip in and lower off the hooks. It's faster and SAFER. Jan 22, 2014

Not sure what other reason the FA team would put in mussy hooks, other than so people can lower from them. They do get replaced quite often. I do agree people need to use their own draws when doing TR laps, I've run into some pretty worn draws at ORG. I'm surprised there hasn't been more accidents. Jan 21, 2014
