Umeds? is on a distinguished road
I find it odd how they didn't discover the issue with the high tech lines during the testing. Quoting from this article:

“Grip is a compromise of friction and wear. In the process of designing the new Radial line, we tested more than 70 different types of ropes."


What about the claim of "no overrides" when easing lines? Can anyone confirm that this is the case in real-world scenarios? I always found this to be a hassle with my previous winches.
