I know soft shackles have tons of advantages but my gads...the 4.75T SWL hard shackle failed at over 38T! The soft shackle broke right at its breaking point - if - you did it right. 8000-9000 kg (~8-10T) is still roughly 2x safety factor over a 4.75T hard shackle and the failure was very progressive but 38T is an 8x safety factor! Granted they are only pulling against the pin, I wonder how it would fair pulling against the U...which you shouldn’t do anyway but whatevers.
