25 feet effectively triples your working distance for an additional 70g and 100cc Near zero stretch means the Operator will not waste energy overcoming the elasticity of the system before force (work) is applied to the workpiece. This loss is not limited to tensioning the system before the workpiece begins to move but occurs to some degree many times repeated with every repositioning of the Operator’s hands.
Vectran® Dyneema® and Spectra® all boast of this nearly elastic free property. We recommend using low stretch ropes where possible to optimize the relatively short hoist travel. If your rigging has five feet of stretch you can only make seven-foot moves and the energy expended to take up that stretch each time is absolutely wasted. Our use of Spectra® in the hoist coupled with low stretch cordage minimizes this waste of energy. As a side benefit rigid connections will reduce the stored energy that fuels the dangerous condition of snapback if there is a catastrophic failure in the rigging.
