I stumbled across this a while back on a FB group and then again on BleepingJeep. Its marketed as a snatch block replacement. Anybody use them or see a reason to avoid?

There is a video on Youtube that shows an increase in friction over a standard block, reducing affective pulling power...


Other than that, I haven't used one myself so can't say.

Yes they're not as friction-free as a snatch block is but they still work "well enough" where larger diameter like 3/8" synthetic ropes are concerned. I'd rather have one of those than not if I didn't already have a snatch block.
