12 Ton Shocked I'd worry about the towing point of the car I was pulling

I prefer something like this - the open end goes over my tow ball Thumbs Up

No problems chap, but it's a bit like Saying to a potential RR buyer, well why not buy one of those Defenders there. Ok it's not got the luxury but it can go off road and tow and it'll save you thousands s

These ropes are the same as LRE use, the safety hook fit the towing eyes front and back of the Discovery and many other non-LR vehicles without the need for shackles.

Oh as as for the 12T weight rating - a full laden Disco is close to 3-T possibly just, that's over without a trailer - the suction power of mud will take that well over the 3.5 rating of normal tow ropes. And I've seen them snap Shocked

But as I said in the main OP on the Disco forum, I expect peeps to have made their minds up and done their research before so don't expect the main GB thread to become a discussion thread.

These ropes sell like hotcakes on their own, seeming this is the 3rd Rope GB for these and I'm at near 20 ropes in 2 two days and the previous GB were in the 70s & 90s I think that speaks for it's self. I'm not forcing anyone to buy these, I'm just giving you guys the option to buy what I and many others deem as a very good product. Probably a bit like why you guys drive a RR instead of a Defender Thumbs Up

^^^^
And in basic terms, it's a recovery rope, not just a tow rope. Thumbs Up

They can be lethal when they snap, so it's not something to scrimp on. Wink Visiting from DISCO3.CO.UK

I've already got one from the 2009 group buy. It's done load of work including dragging out tree stumps (a bit of Landy-scaping) and it's still fine so I can definitely vouch for the quality.

Can I ask the most important question...

The rope/strap is rated to 12t.
What are the hooks/shackles rated to? FFRR MY06 facelift With TDV8 Alloys Zeros/ATR's
