Has anyone figured out the batch numbers on Wild Country slings? I'm guessing it should be possible to tell the year of manufacture. I've got one instruction leaflet from them that says the batch is three letters:

First letter indicates year of manufacture e.g. A=Year 2000, B=2001 etc
Second letter indicates the manufacturer, Wild Country internal reference
Third letter indicates month of manufacture e.g. A=January, B=February, etc.

But that doesn't match with the slings I have. One has batch AEX for example, but they only started making that design in 2009, plus X doesn't match to a month. I'm guessing the same labelling would apply to quickdraw slings, at least I've got a load that also start A.

Any ideas?

You could try asking Beardy Mike who posts on here. Post a thread with a title that mentions cams and he'll soon pop up.

You could email Wild Country to ask them?
