Update – I now realize that the ARB Snatch Strap can stretch about 10%
and the Yankum kinetic recovery rope can stretch up to 30% at maximum.
and other research that I have done indicates that there is a reason that some people prefer Kinetic ropes such as the Yankum… as it can absorb more energy and do a bigger, smoother recovery.
so i now know the ARB Snatch Strap isn’t the same tool as the Yankum, or similar.
That article explains why you don’t want to buy a POLYESTER (non-stretch) strap, nor do you want a strap with metal hooks on it.
It is entirely possible to find good, stretchable nylon snatch straps without hooks.
Take a look at the snatch straps from ARB.
The prices seem very moderate compared to, say, an equivalent recovery rope from Bubba Rope.
At the same time, ARB is definitely not cheap junk that will let you down when you need it.
