I have two different brands of webbing here are the specs that were listed when I bought them...

Sterling 1 in. Tubular Webbing
MBS of 4496 lbs

Blue Water 1" Climbing-Spec Tubular Webbing
17.8 kN

In terms of "pull strength", forgive me if that's not the proper term, it's strong enough for top-rope falls (edit: used in the TR scenario in which I described earlier). The obvious weakness is abrasion. No clue as far as its dynamic properties but at .40 cents a foot it's not going to break my bank to toss out the length I've been carrying around and replace it with a fresh new peice.
