I got stuck in the snow. In June!Ok so I'll go with it broke near the anchor by chaffing on a rock then flew halfway back to the jeep.
The amount of recoil is predicated upon several factors. If the load is high, the amount of recoil will be high. If the load is low, the recoil will be low. If the load did not cause the line to part and instead a combination of load and physical damage to the line like dragging across a sharp edge, then the amount of recoil is hard to predict except there will be some.That is an important question. That answer will be probably not. And I was Warned about it, too!
