There has been at least one incident involving a worn "adjustable" daisy that broke,

...I have a good friend who broke a yates adjustable as well.

I heard about this guy who died because his worn belay loop broke.

And this other guy decked because HIS ROPE BROKE!

So funny...except that in both situations a standard NYLON daisy most likely would not have broken.

And what makes you think that?

Maybe the fact that in tests the standard nylon daisy's did not completly fail? When drop tested the nylon pocketed daisy's had all of the pockets fail, but the end's do not.
The same daisy mdae out of spectra failed EVERYTIME.
So did the Adjustables.
Look it up..the info is out there.

The main key to remember with ANY daisy is that they are for upward movement, comfort, and organization.
They should NEVER be counted on as a true life safety device. ALWAYS have the rope as your primary attachment to the system.
