I'm not a trad nor an aid climber, I'm no expert and I've never had a need to use daisies.

note that they demonstrate the dangers of clipping TWO loops on a daisy

a single loop wont have that issue ... a daisy after all is a fully rated sling end to end

tell me how a nylon daisy is going to fail from clipping ONE loop ..

in fact if i was a theoretical "RC experts", id say that using a nylon daisy is 'safer' than a knotted sling (nylon or not) or those PASes for raps

but i wont since in the real world it wont matter ...

when was the last time you heard of a climber dying because they clipped ONE loop of a daisy for a rap setup ... id be interested in the accident report
