As a new 4wd enthusiast I'm currently on the market to find some recovery gear & stumbled across the Redback Superstrap.
Can anyone offer me advice on this product & if its worth the investment & is it practical?
Any advice is much appreciated

I'm confused as to what it is. It says on the sites I found for "recovery and towing", two very different operations.

It's a pretty expensive strap, whatever it's for.

Not the sort of thing I would buy, personally I would stick to good shackles only takes a second to put on anyway

Hey UpToP, I have never used one of these, but saw them on the internet, then had a look at one in a TJM store. I think the idea is great, the way they weave together, won't come undone under load (sorta like a Chinese finger trap I had as a kid), and if it gets a lump of metal, like a shackle out of the equation during recovery, it gets my vote. Gotta agree though, is it a snatch strap?? Also, the one I saw on display had a shackle threaded through one of the 'pockets' where the strap weave should go,,, very dangerous, dunno why the store manager left it on display. I mentioned this to one of the staff, got a blank stare! Dave

There are a couple of these weave straps available. The tests done recently in 4WD Action say that the straps are good and well designed, allows for the strap to be adjusted for length, which is very handy.

Never seen one used, yet.

I will hold on to my traditional straps for a while yet.

If you have never been shown or taught how to use a snatch strap, consider joining a 4WD Club.

Whatever strap you decide to buy should have a tag stating that it is a Snatch strap and its SWLetc.
