Best Snatch/Recovery Straps

I am looking into getting a heavy duty snatch strap. I need it to have a working load of no less than 12,000 lbs. (36,000 lbs. break strength). What brands do you all reccomend?

Northern Tools carries S-Line straps. I have seen a brand called Keeper, but I don't know much about them. The best straps I have seen though are the ARB straps, but I think they are a little out of my price range.

Let me know what you all think.

Also, what would you guys reccomend as a rear attachment point? I was looking at this. Buyers Towing Eye.

Buyers 12,000-Lb. Receiver Mount Towing Eye | Towing Accessories | Northern Tool + Equipment

Possibly this Shackle Bracket from Warn, but it has no weight rating that I can find.

before i got my truck broken into i had a procomp. 3x30x30,00lb strap. it was in good condition after being used a lot(i liked to go offroading in my 5.4l excursion and more then once i did what two trucks couldn't do by myself). anyways i think it was about $80 at 4wheelparts. i believe that its better to splurge on the strap and be sure it will hold out then hope it holds out when you are stuck.
i also bought some shackles from the same place. been through the same crap and no problems. only around $20 a pop and i think they were rated for 10k.

I carry an ARB recovery strap, 2"X30' its working load limit is 17500lbs, it was $69, and they go up to $90 something for a 4"X30' 33000lbs strap. I haven't had to use it yet thankfully, but I keep my offroad truck loaded with Fiberlink 2"X30' 20000lbs straps. I also keep a 3/4"X20' Grade 80 super alloy chain w/ hooks with me, sucker weighs over 110lbs, but its breaking strength is said to be 15,000lbs, and I've pulled a F650 w/ dump body and about 2 tons worth of materials in it about 20ft with ease.

I buy all my recovery gear from Tractor Supply Company. I have a combo pintle hook on the back of my truck. It is a pintle hook with a 2 inch ball. I have yet to have any problems with what I use. One word of advice do not and I mean do not get those farm shackles that use a cotter pin to keep the pin in. I have seen those fail many times because of rookies in off-roading. It is not the shackle or the pin that fails. It is the cotter pin that fails which allows the pin of the shackle to slide out. Creating a sling shot for the strap.

It also doesn't hurt to have a couple of these either. For when you can't hook the strap directly to the vehicle you are recovering.

I don't know how people can use Shackles without threads. That would just scare the crap out of me.
