Did you ever break a bonded line during testing? If so what did it break at?

In a homemade pull tester with load scale, yes. But my results aren't official as my equipment isn't accurate enough for real ratings. I hope to get my real results back from our testing lab sometime this month.

To give you an idea, we make two types of bonded lines. Take two spans of webbing, sew ten tacks at each end, then a keeper stitch every x many feet - that forces a equal distribution among the two lines and if any one point in the line breaks it cannot snap back more than a couple feet.

The other option is a bit more time intensive but it's similar with the addition of straight stitches the entire length of the line on each edge holding it together. We use a special stitch & settings to allow the thread to stretch with the line.
