Kill cord

Saw this on ebay

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/New-Stainless-...sid=p1638.m118

Any thoughts as a replacement for the plastic cords supplied as standard?
I guess it should have a longer usefull life but could its higher breaking strain become an issue i.e in a rescue scenario where it snaggs on something?
not bought one but would be interested in your thoughts.

Happy New year to you all

I would be interested in these,the cheap plastic ones have been known to fail. wire cutting into legs etc is obviously a concern, but I do like the suggested quality.

it's worth noting that a kill cord should be as short as comfortly possible, nothing like getting flung off the helm and landing in the back with the kill cord long enough to stay attached, biff, b a marine
