    A bit of a road report so to say would be good
    As prev mentioned... been using them for years, they work great.
    Only hassle is people 'borrowing' them
    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

    More so people borrowing them then finding them really handy so they become a, lets say, long term $0 lease arrangement

    This youtube video has answered my question about soft shackles used with sharp cornered recovery points. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66BXmM_JuBI

    In 2015 I paid for a lazer cutter to make me a hardened steel recovery point that is 20mm thick. I did this so I could round of the edges off to see if it makes a difference to a soft shackle compared the current sharp edged style. I have not finished rounding off the corners yet, but I would be willing to send the recovery point to get it tested If anyone knows how or where to get it done.

    Hi Craig @mudnut any sling and shackle place will be able to test it for you
    first make a plate to bolt your recovery point to with a hole to except a 4,6 t shackle
    You need to ask for them to be proof tested first then have them do a destruction test.
    You want a min of 18t breaking point 12t is too light and youll need to re design it
    Proof testing is they will scribe two lines and then pull it at 4.5t for 50 times if the lines
    are the same you have a winner. even if its moved only one mil youre ok. need more
    help you have my number. expect to pay around $500 to get your certificate
