John Bachar's favorite bolts tested

We tested Taper Bolts (3/8" x 2 5/8") from Greg Barnes from the ASCA sent them to use and said they were John Bachar's favorite bolts. Thank you Bobby Hutton and Mike Rogers (@wolf_in_the_weeds) for destroying things for science with me.

In tension they were dangerously low at 9.78kn, 3.60kn, 4.80kn.

In Shear they were better at 22.58kn, 28.06kn and 24.76kn.

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.
