Respectfully, much of this review regarding product description of factors needing to be considered before purchasing are hearsay and false claims. I am a Director of Sales and Technical Operarions for a 50 plus year old heavy lift and transportation rigging manufacturer in the most competitive market in the US, Gulf of Mexico region. We are one of the largest rigging manufacturers in the US and we make synthetic web slings along with wire rope, chain, high strength cordage slings for overhead lifting along with tow and recovery straps. First, Nylon and Polyester web have the same strength. Nylon holds up better in some chemical environments like acidic. They tend to stretch a bit more and soak up more water than Poly. Other than that they have the same traits and look identical. All polyester web has a center line tracer on the web. That’s how you identify poly web. Poly is not better for abrasion resistance to dirt, rock or sand. That is a false claim and not based on consistent testing. There are no UV protective coatings applied to these recovery or tow straps. Any color you see is a die used during weaving the web at manufacturing or dipping in a bulk bath after the web is made. This is only color for presentation. UV attacks both web types. The review is correct in that web should be cleaned after use and stored in a dry, control environment place not exposed to UV to maximize the strap life. Also as for water resistant, they do make plastic coated or impregnated webbing but its very expensive compared to the prices these companies are listing as sell prices. The Rhino USA for example has cheap cordura chaffe protection covering the sling. This really isn’t a major protector. It’s the cheapest there is. Also they are not pull testing these. Test beds are very expensive. We have a 2 million lb test bed costing over a million. The smaller test beds we have cost over 100k easily. A small, father owned company and two sons are not making that kind of investment for what they sell. Their shackles are not packaged like that, powered coated and US made. Those are imported shackles for sure. To buy domestic nylon or poly web, sew the strap, add the chaffe protection, tagging, custom colors, testing, there is no way they would sell this for $29 retail and its made in the US. We are a 50 million dollar a year company and we have some of the best costing in the country and we can’t sell for those prices. Federal spec does not require a break test nor pull test. Think about it, they are not for overhead lifting so there is no need for pull testing. ASME B30.9 to which all US slings are manufactured to do not require web slings to be pull tested. Only chain slings, and socketed wire ropes require pull testing. Working load limits are posted on all manufacturer sites for web slings and are based on web width and the ply of the slings. All of us manufacturers have the same WLL’s for our web slings. Multiply that wll by 5 and that is what the sling will expectedly break at. These slings have a 5:1 design factor. Rhino most likely imports these sling from China pre made custom for them. They may put their tag on it here but that’s it. Buying in bulk will get you rock bottom pricing however with the new tariff talk that will change soon.
The Grip recovery strap is made of polyester, which is typically material that would be used in a tow strap. But, it is not uncommon to see recovery straps made of polyester as well or a combination of Polyester and other materials. Grips recovery strap is weather resistant like most recovery straps out there and is designed to stand the test of any weather condition you can throw at it.
Once you are certain the tow strap has been properly secured to both the stuck, stalled, or otherwise afflicted vehicle and to the automobile providing the tow, slowly allow the towing vehicle to roll forward until the slack in the strap as been pulled taut. Most good tow straps will not stretch in any noticeable way, so once the line has been drawn tight, the towing can commence at once. Make sure the "driver" in the towed vehicle is ready to steer and depress the brakes, as even a slight drop in speed from the forward vehicle can otherwise result in a rear end collision.
Big Ant comes to your aid when you stuck at any off-road. To reinforce its durability the manufacturers have kept its length 20 feet and the width 3 inches. No matter which sort of weather is reigning, it’ll just make the work done at every atmosphere. You can verily rely on it in terms of towing due to its being featured with double loop. You’ll also find the strap perfect for maintaining proper distance between the vehicles.
I too have their shackle hitch, tow strap and 2 d rings but still haven't needed to use them. Their quality appears to be good and supposedly made in USA. I liked their stuff enough to also purchase and just received today two of their tire pressure gauges since I broke the head off of an old pencil style one. Again quality seems to be pretty good.
Recovery straps are different in that their material provide some elasticity so that they stretch. You can easily identify recovery straps as they have loops at each end, which are attached to recovery or frame points often found under trucks or on truck bumpers. Their stretching property is more important however, as these straps will initially stretch to their capacity, before pulling the vehicle as it attempts to go back to its original condition. More importantly, these straps do not have any hooks or metal pieces attached to them, making them safe to use if they accidentally come undone.
HEAVY DUTY - CRAFTED TO LAST: Made of carefully woven Polyester and thanks to its reinforced stitching and loops, this towing strap will never let you down. Ready to stand heavy duty use and everyday wear and tear. Our tow strap is moisture and weather resistant, waterproof, tough yet flexible, 100% reliable and ready to go. Wash and keep it clean to elongate its lifespan.

They can actually be better than your typical strap. This is because they offer a lot more give than standard tow straps. While a normal towing job will hold your car firmly in place during transit, the Ultimate Tow Recovery Strap made it easy to remove tree log, stump, bushes easily. Towing can be violent, and can cause damage when done incorrectly. Therefore one of your best options is always going to be having a Heavy Duty 3" x 20' Winch Snatch Strap in your vehicle at all times, so that you can utilize it’s effectiveness in an emergency.

Another heavy duty option comes from Sunferno, with a 3-inch wide by 20-foot long tow recovery strap. This strap claims to have 10-percent maximum stretch with 35,000-lb break strength. It’s constructed from single-ply webbing and features reinforced eye loops, protective sleeves, and a high-visibility bright green finish. This strap can also be used to remove fallen trees, stumps, or bushes if necessary and is water resistant, so you can easily clean it after it’s used.
Estimasi pengiriman internasional dapat berbeda karena adanya beberapa alasan di luar kendali sebagai berikut: seller tidak segera melakukan pengiriman, cuaca buruk, penundaan di bea cukai (terutama di puncak musim belanja seperti Natal, Tahun Baru, Tahun Baru Imlek, dan libur internasional lainnya. Weshop tidak menjamin ketepatan estimasi pengiriman internasional dalam kondisi-kondisi tersebut.
Just got my shipment in the mail today. I got the Recovery Tow Strap, Shackle Hitch Receiver, Premiu...m Bungee Cord Set, and 2 D-Ring Shackles. Every piece of equipment feels super solid, and I can’t wait to put them to the test with my Z71 Silverado. As an added bonus, the shipment came incredibly fast, and the shipping was free! I highly recommend this company and their products.

Polyester Recovery Straps stretch about 2% so they are pretty stiff. With Polyester recovery straps you have more of a stable, controlled yank when pulling someone’s truck out. With polyester recovery straps, you have a solid pull from the start but you don’t want to have a very large gap and delay in the pull. With polyester straps, you want short jerks or short pulls, not long driving starts. Polyester recovery straps are great for a quick pull if you are on stable ground and someone else is stuck and the distance is relatively close.
