Mammut Dyneema Climbing Slings gear break test in slow motion - Limiter Knots are NOT redundant!!!

We tested Mammut 8.0 dyneema climbing slings found at pulled normal, sliding x and with limiter knots. We also tested new vs old and found dyneema doesn't hold up well! Also limiter knots, when broken from force, break in the knot and the whole thing unravels so it isn't redundant. Do you think 2 climbing slings in a sliding X is a better solution to anchors??? -with Bobby Hutton

We are not sponsored by Mammut and did not get free slings. If you like these mythbustery types of videos please throw us a couple bucks on or support our new coffee business

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.
