Equalization is NOT a myth - new bolt pattern to make sliding x highline anchors equalize

About a year ago, we should "automatic" equalization was a myth when using a sliding x for an anchor and that BFK anchors were random at best. The bolts most in line see the most force and the closest bolts see the most force, so we cancel them out in this video by putting the center most bolts much further back than the sides and we were able to achieve equalization with our sliding X. This may be the future pattern we start to use when bolting highlines. Thank you Ben Donnelly for telling me about the issues of equalization and thank you Andy Lewis for letting me borrow your dynomometers to do this test.

Breaking Gear Fear

Edutainment has been a great way to help people understand their gear, and know the true limitations of it.  Watching HOW gear fails is more important than the force itself, as almost all gear is super good enough.  It's more important to share information on how to stay safe than it is to have a paywall.  We hope our stoke is contagious.
