Topic - Whats the point of a daisy chain?

robbo99 - on 24 Jul 2014
I was labouring under the assumption that clipping in when threading - either on single or multi-pitch climbs - using a daisy chain was a smart thing to do.
From what i read of the DDM tests, dyneema just doesnt take dynamic loads. So while im unlikely to dynamically load a daisy on a single pitch route, its possible on a multi. According to DMM a fall factor of 0.25 is enough to break one.

So that said, it appears a Purcell prusik is the way to go
Thoughts?
