The friction bar is smooth but has one little scratch you can feel but is not a threat to the line (see picture). The gate feels strong and snaps shut tight. The sling and line were both manufactured just about 1 year ago on 2/20. Zoom into the photos to see the date of manufacture.
The sling and line show normal use with no areas of specific concern. They have plenty of life left.
