Do you mean by not having as much distance to accelerate before starting to load the rope and putting less momentum into the system? I was thinking along the lines of a larger rope elongates less so the total time spent storing and releasing energy is reduced resulting in a higher peak force.If the time is limited due to a short rope then the then the peak force cannot be reached. Yes/Maybe ?
That's kind of the point, isn't it? Having a dynamic rope small enough to stretch is going to reduce the shock and give the yank that is the key. So you just want one not so oversized that it doesn't stretch at all or too small and close to breaking. The ideal size and length will depend like Phil mentioned. The one that works in one case might not be just right in another.Oh, I agree. With all of the variables in play, any KRR is a compromise in some respects.
