    This guy has 16 foot and 60 foot snatch straps. They seem to be very heavy duty at 44.5k and 67.5k pound ratings. Anyway, I plan on bidding to win on one of his auctions, since I currently do not own a snatch strap. What would be a better choice as far as length goes? The 16 ft or 60 ft strap???

    I don't know the prices, but check with the folks at http://www.ultimate4wheeldriveperformance.com They sell a 30-foot double-strap that's rated at something like 58K lbs. :eek1: And it's brand new, so you don't have to wonder if it's dry rotted from age... :-)

    16 feet is a bit on the short side. Makes it too easy for a throttle happy yahoo to slam into your rig just after you get them out of a jam. :doah: 60 feet is something that would rarely be required unless you play in some major league mudholes where ya can't get close to the stuckee.

    The 60 footer would be the best option.. It is always better to have more length then you need.. If you doubled it then it would only be 30ft which is about standard..

    HarryH3 that link you posted said ''online catalog coming soon'' so how were you able to see the straps ? :confused:

    I have the 16 foot 44.5K strap...ive never been on either end of it, but my friend has helped yank someone out with it and said that thing doesn't not have ANY give in it. Im not saying don't get one, but i wouldn't use it as my main strap. I have a 30 ft 40K lb keeper strap thats my main strap, nice and stretchy, and i would only connect the 16 foot strap to the end if i had to...my buddy said his back hurt afterwards...Some of those straps go cheap, i got mine for like $18 shipped, so it was worth it. It would make a good strap to winch from if you used a hi lift or something of that nature tho.

    I WON mine in one of their monthly contests. :D And they must be changing their site around, as they used to show the straps. :confused:
