    I think the key word is “next” to. If the terminal itself would have broken at 10,000 lbs then I guess it would have passed, barely but the fact that the wire broke next to their terminal would cause me to wonder what it is the about termination had to do with the wire’s breaking.

    Isn’t the rating of a wire its working strength with a safety factor figured in , and not absolute strength of the wire? If that factor is 15 to 20%, then the wire should not have failed at 10,000 lbs. Insofar that it did at the terminal, then the terminal is suspect. If the test were to be repeated, with the same result, then there is something definitely going wrong somewhere.
