    Default Amkus arrs

    Any one using this system out there? Pro's? Con's? I used a modified manual captsisan(sp?) for some low-angle stuff awhile back and really liked what i saw. I have been studying the ARRS for a little while now and would like to hear from some one that has fielded it.

    p.s. I watched the video and laughed my *** off every time they said ARRS
    Courage, Being Scared to Death and Saddling Up anyways.

    oh forgot yes we have used on a few calls only con i can find is that it is rated at 1000 pounds but if you understand rope and how it works you will know that reaching 1000 pounds even when shock loading it very hard to do but on the same side it will not fail it just slips and this is what you want to happen and it works really really well for low angle rescue
