I really enjoyed this thread. I spend most of my reading today on pages 3 and 4. There was a lot of discussion on jackline strength and that basically it is about impossible to get to 4500 lbs pulls strength. In the absense of reading the pages up to this point, has Estar or anyone else considered making the jacklines with two looped ends from 3 pieces of webbing? One piece would form the primary length between the looped ends and each looped end would be made from a separate piece the length of the loop plus twice the length of the sewn area. These ends would be folded over to look like a "U" and the primary webbing length would be sandwhiched between the "U". The stitching would go through all three layers of webbing/ This would create a stitch loading similar to the continuous loops discussed that mountain climber use, as well as industrial lifting straps.
