A shock absorbing traveller - hadn't thought about that.
Another place for it is traveler controls; Beth & Evans use it on their traveler to limit shock loads during jibes.
It wouldn't absorb much, if you have enough purchase; still, my traveller line is getting tatty and I do have a newly retired 8.6 mm ice rope that would fit nicely. Since I don't
fall leading ice, it only has raps on it
