Am posting to have my imminent impulse purchase of a pair of figure of 8 lifting straps supported by the forum. Am looking for speed and ease of set up.
Have used the loop and tail straps thus far. Annoying to set up and I take longer than I have to trying to twist the wraps to max security.
Are figure 8 straps fast and easy to set up e.g. hand thru loop, under the bar, hand thru other loop & slide out to tension?
Eddie Hall pulled 500kg with figue 8 straps. Therefore I will pull 500 with them too.
Other pros/cons worth considering? Thoughts/Experiences? Is it consistent with the above?
