Nice new vid from the BD Test Lab ---

That's very interesting, especially concerning the slings.
When it comes to nuts and cams though, I have never worried about the cable or cam breaking, but rather the device being forced out or slipping out of the crack on a fall. Thank goodness it has never happened to me, but that's the part I am worried about.
Anyway (and maybe Tom, you might know some of this), one thing I have always wondered is how water effects the breaking strength of slings, ropes, and harnesses. In canyoneering, we often rappel with wet harnesses, use wet slings, and wet ropes. I wonder how much difference there is in strength when comparing dry equipment with wet equipment? I have never worried about the integrity of equipment just because it is wet, but I do wonder how much difference there is in breaking strength.
GREAT test article
