This is kind of a random question and I guess it really doesnt matter, but I need to satiate my curiosity. When a sling gives a rating of 22kn or whatever it may be, what is the weakest point on the sling? is it the sling material itself (dyneema, nylon, etc) or is it the stitched point that connects the two ends together?
I also have a question about water knots. Would a water knot be sufficient to use in a back up or emergency situation to make a sling. If a fall was taken on the sling would the water knot cut through itself under pressure. It seems that the dyneema would cut through itself easier because it is so much smaller in width, but Im not sure.
Thanks for reading this, Ive just had a few things running through my head and thought I would pick your brains.
