/ Blue Ice Boa Leash
It's strong enough to hold your tools if you drop them. It's not designed to be load bearing. A Dyneema sling is about 22kn (a lot stronger)
daN is decaNewtons, i.e. 10 N, compared with kN which is 1000 N, so 500 daN = 5 kN, or will hold approximately 500 kg static load (on Earth, assuming I have done my sums right). Actually seems surprisingly strong for something weighing 50g; stronger than most micro nuts.
So this boa leash thingy is equal to 5kn ?,if so im buying one,most of the other springy leashes are only rated to 2-2.5kn i think.
Last year i took my only ever fall on ice and my grivel spring leash held me,but would like a bit more room for error..!.
Yeah surprisingly good for a spring leash.
Best thing about it is that you can larks foot your tools to the leash, rather than clipping in with wiregates that have a habit of coming undone at inconvenient times, or screws that freeze up. Well, you can on my Nomics anyway.
