Product Review:

"Sailing Today" included this product in an MOB Group Test (November 2010). ST's technical consultant, Duncan Kent, commented: "Something about this strop says "trust me", which could be that it is made from similar materials to a car's seatbelt or a heavy duty harness. Whether or not I decide to put any other device on board for MOB recovery, I think I would always want one of these trusty strops on board as well - just in case."
