hey all- there's a good discussion of sling materials on CC right now:
http://cascadeclimbers.com/forum/ubbthr ... ost1059173

the best thing i've found out of it is this dyneema vs nylon sling test:

quite scary really. i didn't know that tieing knots in dyneema slings reduced their strength so dramatically.
think i'll be picking up some cheap fatty nylon slings for cragging and reserve the expensive dyneema for the mountains.
