are you guys doubling up on your anchor webbing? I noticed that after 1 session on my new anchors, there was already biner damage on the slings.

I only don't double up on my webbing, neither does anyone else i know. You might try using some cordalette for your dynamic anchor.

My anchors are at least doubled up.

I've had anchors get damaged by rubbing on a tree, but never from 'biners. how did that happen?

What is this dymanic anchor you speak of?

How bad are we talking about? Any chance for posting a photo or comparing to these below because there is a big difference between fuzzy and fuzzy. Generally speaking biners should not be an "immediate" wear point. If your talking a few fibers coming up, that's pretty normal anytime it's flexed under a load but normally you'll actually see a "glazing" of smoothness where biners meet webbing until it's been there long enough to do long term wear.

This thread prompted me to finally finsh one of my projects I'd been meaning to publish for some time. I need to figure out my actual recommendations for each level and type of wear but otherwise it's got some good examples of what can and will happen to webbing under use.

Suggestions or additional examples are welcome.

dynamic anchor would be the end with your tensioning system.

I know I'm just being picky but dynamic would imply that the anchor itself changes or moves; probably best to just stick with terminology such as tensioning end since the anchor itself doesn't move.

Joe,

Cool project with the webbing wear thing. Have you load tested the battery acid soaked web yet? It'd be really interesting to break all the webbing you have pictured and report at what tension they broke. That would add a lot of helpful data.

Thanks for all your hard work!

Niles,

Not yet, but that is the plan. Unfortunately some of the samples are only a few inches but we could recreate the damage on longer samples.

I wish I had access to proper testing facilities but it's too expensive to cover right now.

Interesting project Joe, do you get the same frequency of defects with the 11/16th webbing as the 1"?

Glad to see that you check all spools now too - I'm greatful that you replaced the "un-spliced" spool that had a splice in it that I ordered from you last year. That's good customer service, cheers!

I have found some similar flaws in 11/16, 1 inch mil or climb spec & 2 inch, but I do not work w/ the same volume of these to make sweeping conclusions.
