That sucks. I see python straps are only 3/4" wide. Wonder if that same level of damage would have happened with 1" straps. 1/4" doesn't seem like a whole lot.

I've been using 1/2" straps on my backyard trees and see a little damage, but I am setting up at least once or twice a weekend on the same spots. Maybe the bark was soggy? Maybe more wraps around the tree would have helped?

You gotta be shitting me.
Where the fuck is the road?
