Is that a picture of the surface of Mars? :lol:
Haha ! Im I the only one that this happens to ? I would go through a full, spring and top every year because of that stupid roller hook ! The rope does last a lot longer with it though.
No, happens to me too. Sometimes the top of the spreader bar pad gets tucked backwards, and makes it worse. Seems to wear out the suit about the same rate as it wears out every where though...

This is the best solution - almost all friction absorbed by the pulley rolling on the 6mm stainless shackle bolt so virtually no rope wear.

That looks great! Have been using dynabar for several years. Got the stealth bar and harness. How did u make that or where did you get it. Looks like the same pulley/wheel from dynabar but welded with a ring? Agree that less friction equals less wear

Matt
It's the pulley wheel (which has a 6mm ID) from my old Dynabar on a 6mm shackle. The 4mm x 25mm 316 stainless ring was welded onto the shackle by a local company who do stainless welding, cost was peanuts.

The Dynabar pulley wheels can now be sourced from Shapeways.com

Shackles with slotted pins (less for rope to tangle on) are widely available, eg

https://www.gsproducts.co.uk/6mm-stainl ... -slot-pin/

as are 316 stainless rings. A larger ring could be used if required, of course.

I now have an Infexion.eu seat belt QR, one version of which has a 6mm shackle, with my Dynabar wheel on it.
Here it is on my Mystic Stealth rope spreader bar. I think that Infexion.eu can now supply their QR with a wheel fitted.
