"rolling" or "Twisting" webbing

So, I just like a tubular webbing bridge. I like the friction that it provides in the carabiner when rotating, and I like using a Austrialpine 1 inch buckle so that my bridge can be opened up.

I was thinking of a way to make tubular webbing applicable, and effective in use with bridge loops that have the nodes for adjustment (Phantom style). I havent been able to find much info on the effect of twisting tubular webbing (see photo). Since im not putting any knots in the line, I dont see that I would loose much strength doing this. Any thoughts otherwise? The stitching in the photo is not final...just a tack in case I decide to go away from this.

I don't know if it's a good comparison but if you need chain shorter you twist it up and as far as I know doesn't effect strength

Weldabeast is right about our lift straps. Seems it would really make it stronger in that area.

I don’t see how it would be an issue by twisting it. But I also doubt it would slip out or move at all in the phantom nodes, once under load I would think it would lock in

I seriously thought the same thing, but flat webbing does just roll over 1/2 nodes. The twist worked great.

@always89y great work. I Iike the amsteel bridge but this is innovative thinking for guys that like the webbing bridge. You are just churning out the good ideas.

Instead of a twist try tri-folding the webbing like a letter and sewing into place. That will produce a very tight, small, and strong section to fit the comfort channels. You’ll need a heavy duty sewing machine to do this.

I think stitching the trifold webbing would be a better option. Tight and firm is what you're looking for with those loops (among other things ) connecting to your bridge.

Flat webbing would want to slide out of the channel I think.

Thanks! I ended up rolling it tight and stitching down the center with tension on either end. Then I looped it around. Works great now.

Could you post a pic please. Really like this idea. I really like webbing over Amsteel also.
