    I'm confused, the link goes to a Recovery strap, not a snatch strap.

    We all know not to have hooks on our straps--we need to use loops instead.

    We also now that tow straps are just for towing and not for recovering a stuck vehicle.

    And the problem with a plain recovery strap is that they "give" very little, though better than a tow strap or a chain(which should never be used to pull someone out).

    But a snatch strap actually stretches and recoils(like an elastic band), so this makes it the one strap that you should have. It is great for pulling a heavier, stuck vehicle out with a lighter one.

    Same thing in this case. Regardless of the name, the important part is that it is a strap that stretches. Not a tow strap which resists stretch. They call this one a recovery strap, we call it a snatch strap. Either way, it has stretch.

    It does appear to be a Tow Strap...Recovery Straps (Snatch Straps) seem to have a greater thickness. At least my ARB is much thicker than the picture shown in this link.

    The ARB straps are bigger than all others. If money was not a concern, ARB is the way to go. Their straps are awesome.

    This strap is a cheaper one but will still get the job done. From the ad:

    2' x 20', Vehicle Recovery Strap, 3,333 LB Working Load Limit, Abrasion Resistant Webbing, Stretch & Recoil Action, Recommended For Mid-Size Trucks, Jeeps.
    That stretch and recoil action is what makes it suitable for recoveries or snatching.

    I have two tow straps that I have won and have used them. They work but they are rough on the vehicle and the passengers. I like having the tow straps for some scenarios but definitely need to get a snatch strap.

    The thicker ones are probably rated for more weight, but like Ryan wrote in his post on the first page, too high of a rating might not give the "stretch & recoil" action that makes extricating a potentially heavier vehicle possible and without as much harshness ;)
    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a tall lift, big mud tires, winch, and a light bar simply do not.
    Why buy a Wrangler if you don't take the top and doors off?

    Yes it would.
    That is the thing that I find, deals just keep getting better sometimes because if you want to beat the other guy, you simply have to be cheaper.
    Keeper is a good brand too.

    Does anyone know a good source for kinetic rope (which REALLY stretches I hear), might be nice to have one of those per group on runs. I dont mind buying one if the price isnt too insane. Also looking for a good source for the soft shackles.

    I don't have one yet, but I've had my eye on one of these: http://www.bubbarope.com/4x4-products - I will say it seems like it has the potential to be quite dangerous.

    That being said....if you know how to splice double braid rope (and I do) you can make your own with line from a marine store. I can get the same BS line for $70.
    So, on second thought..I'll make my own with the 25' line I have in my basement...for free

    Thanks to Joe for pointing them out to us today at Shawns. I think I am going to upgrade this year to this Renegade model.

    After Saturday's run, I see that we need more snatch/stretch/recoil ropes and straps to be used instead of the tow or plain recovery straps.

    But in a week or two I might post it up again, if I'm feeling like a pain in the neck...

    I am all for keeping members informed and finding them deals by keeping threads like this alive, but with Paul still on his meds, he is just ichin' to ban someone, lol :)

    I use a master pull kinetic recovery rope rated at 20,000 pounds. It stretches out and recoils nicely even when yanking out something defender sized.

    It was once used in a pinch to pull out a 50,000 pound or so loader from the snow.

    It wasn't cheap but, I am a big fan of it. And would recommend that, or any rope that stretches and recoils.

    Great way to see that type of strap in action is to watch the Top Gear UK polar special.
