Lashing or Tie Down Straps

I recall an article in the Overland Journal about straps. Where they lashed down a Pelican and threw it out of a pickup to determine the winner. Does anyone have the name for the blue strap with the brass roller that scored well?

Russ-
Are you talking about the roller cam? (http://www.rollercam.com/) It won the value award in that test (Winter of 2012 edition).

Gotta love having nothing to do waiting on the suck-ass movers to come pack shit up...

1000lbs of express + 3750 household goods; that left yesterday & I think we had all of 1700lbs total....ample room for land rover stuff on the way back!

Plus this rollercam guy has this other product and he's an LR guy...I actually bought some of these tough stakes "after" my Padre Island event two years ago with 40 MPH winds...actually not unlike the Overland Expo...
