That is why our straps include a Cordura Sliding Sleeve. If you have to pull against a tree or rock, helps to protect the strap. And our new WRAP-IT strap can be used to hook to vehicles that don't have recovery points, so your nice recovery strap doesn't get all chewed up.

If at first you don't succeed, don't try skydiving

i've had good luck with mine. procomp lasted 3 years. i try to winch before i use a strap though because of the level of control, so my straps probably don't see as much use as some. arb still looks new after almsot 2 years, and my kenedy tow strap is s doing great after a few uses since i got it about 7 months ago. that one douples as a tree strap as well, so it's seen some good hard pulling.

Just sent an email to my parents and family with a wish lists that includes pretty much one of each of your straps and some ARB shackles... told them if they were uncertain about making the order for them to just call and ask for Dan and tell them that their son, or brother, whatever the case may be is a member on TW and they needed to order some recovery straps for him.... so if you get that phone call then maybe, I dont know, you could give me a hint to what I will be getting for Christmas??????


All joking aside i did refer them to you first and told them you would set them up all they had to do was tell you the budget ($100) and you would work on getting a package together and in the mail.
