broken samples I11, I12, I13, and I14.

all samples broke at the carabiner, not at the tack. this is reassuring.

the new red webbing held ~7400-7900 lbs. the used green webbing used ~6700 lbs. all four samples were held above 4000 pounds for three minutes with no damage before being pulled to failure. clearly they would all make fine belay loops, but it is interesting that the green broke so low. a testament either to nylon age or wear effects on strength. webbing pinching at the biner may have been a contributing factor due to its wider cross section.
