Re: New England Ropes Synthetic lifelines?!?!
My first priority is safety, which stainless 1x19 lifelines give one far more of than any synthetics ; a daredevil stunt.
How so? I guess your stainless life line will hold up better if you fall against them while wearing knife covered trousers, but otherwise the strength of both materials is very similar.
