Well it has a potential single point of failure where the rap ring is connected, and those hollow aluminum rings are designed for a single use only...they wear out extremely quickly, and it won't be long before some CC or USAFA gumbies are toproping directly through it. I understand why you put the quicklinks where you did, but I would much rather see them used at the powerpoint where the rope will be wearing through the rap ring.

Ok--quicklinks--cool. Powerpoint--check. Cut sling with slippy knots? Who ordered that?
