Re: plastic tubes on depower/safety lines - are they a good thing?

Re: plastic tubes on depower/safety lines - are they a good thing?

I am still curious as to how you determine that the plastic line had enough and has to be replaced? How about this idea like they do with toothbrushes When new the depower/safety lines are blue When they turn white from many hours of usage then it's time for new ones https://smedia.webcollage.net/r...

Re: Casualty in Sicily
