Here's what I can say on this matter.
This is a 1/4" amsteel bridge with locked brummel splices and proper 2 1/4 fid burries on each end. We had to get a concrete testing machine to finally get enough force to break the Mantis last week. At an astounding number (details coming later) something finally broke. After inspection, the bridge was stiff from being pulled so hard but otherwise in good shape.
Keep in mind, that if the bridge rope is rated for 7700#, and you lose 30%, you are still left with over 5000. Then since the rope is actually doubled over by going through your carabiner on your tether, putting half the load is on each side, the bridge theoretically can hold 10000#.......
I personally don't know how much the bridge truly can hold because we still haven't been able to break one, but it's ALOT.
