telemarker Posted March 1, 2004 Share Posted March 1, 2004 Question here...why wouldn't it be preferable to use tied webbing for quick draws, instead of sewn runners?? The reason I ask is wouldn't the knot of a tied runner absorb more of the force of a fall as it cinches tight, therefore putting less force on the gear, assuming a trad lead? Of course, there's always the risk of the tied runner coming untied. However, wouldn't the tied runner work somewhat like a screamer in absorbing the fall as the knot cinches under load?
