Seems like I saw someone say it on this BB - the discussion was not about that specifically, but the comment was. Maybe it was on another BB. I'd hoped posting it here would get that person to elaborate further. It must have been somewhere else.
I searched the internet trying to find if it was true or not.
I'd sure think (hope) that when they say 8000 lbs, they mean 8000 lbs. of real pull, of course that would be on the first wrap layer.
But in this day of deception most everything seems to be false. Interest rates, political "spin," mileage figures, calories, tax cuts, Chinese nails you can't drive with a hammer, even "change."
At least there's one thing that's real.
