    I personally would love a giant ring.

    Yes, strengh is important, but that big ring can be attached to the sling/ load line in ways the smaller ones cannot

    Does the ring do something a big shackle wouldn't? A bit of weld on the pin?

    I remember seeing and old rigging shackle that Riggs had, IIRC, that had weld built up all over the pin for bend radius/ wear surface, I think. It was in an early article about rigging rings.

    Doesn't dissipate heat very well on long runs sean

    I've wondered about that! I can see the steel shackle being a heat sink and holding onto the heat, especially on long runs, but where does the heat go on a ring... Laws of physics don't change... friction will turn to heat ... where does it go???? most likely a simple answer... can someone clue me in on the physics of heat dissipation...
    thanks

    Murphy I'm no expert but I would guess it's because the aluminum dissipates the heat so well ie the whole ring becomes the same temp so you have a larger surface area dissipating heat. The steel doesn't transfer it's heat so well so you have a condensed area of really hot material so less surface area but higher temps. Hence melted ropes..,.
