    Never used that rope so I couldn't say. But I've never had a problem with the heavy duty tow straps.

    Depends on what you are trying to do. The bubba rope is a snatch rope. Stores kinetic energy as it extends so it has more of a pull when it extends fully. This works great for recoveries but not so well for constant pulling. Most "yellow" straps are not snatch straps and intended for constant load.
    You can get snatch straps as well. I have both snatch straps and traditional straps in my toy for different occasions.

    Agree with Jerry. Was going to say if you can put it in 4low and slowly pull someone out the yellow strap will work. If it takes more than that then the snatch rope is what you need to get the added energy and not brake things.

    Never used Bubba ropes. Always used tow straps, even used a synthetic diamond braided rope with 400 lb pull weight to get someone unstuck. :humble:

    I'm not sure I understand the "stored" energy from stretch and will need to think about one and under what circumstances it would be preferable. I have about 60' of heavy chain that has served me well. But, as a sailor, I really like Dyneema. It's light weight, super easy to make eye splices and has amazing strength to weight ratio. It's supposed to be stronger than equally sized wire rope.

    Try them. Doing a shock load recovery with a regular tow strap is abrupt and has larger forces on the recovery points. Kinetic straps/ropes are all I use for stuck recoveries in sand, mud, and snow. Much more graceful. As with any recovery, just be sure to use proper recovery points.

    Check out our USA Made Recovery (Snatch) Straps. They can pretty much handle any load you plan to throw at them. The nice thing about the Flat Material style strap is that they can be rolled up very nicely for easier storage. Our Wheeler's Straps have Cordura Wrapped Eyes as well as a Cordura Slider in case you have to pull against a tree or over a rock.

    Thanks csuviper, a lot of good info there. I recently pulled a vehicle using the ball on my hitch...... Exactly what they say not to do.

    Yep definitely don't. There is a video on youtube where two guys were killed from the ball breaking off. Don't want to post it as it is graphic.
