Kong Drop Test


We shot this video during one of our SPRAT classes after a discussion started about how well the Kong Backup would arrest on the victim’s loaded line during the rescue scenario. These tests were simple with spare gear we had, and were not very scientific. It appears to us that the Kong is not ideal in this limited scenario. While it is a great backup device, we prefer using the ASAP on the loaded line, and the Kong on all other lines.
