Daisy chains, which are used by many climbers to clip into anchors, only maintain their full strength if used end to end. However, the PAS maintains its full strength of 18kN through every single pocket in the daisy chain. Compare this to the 2kN of a typical daisy chain and it is easy to see how much safer the PAS is.
