Your experience with Peak Design slide?

These PD slide straps look pretty nice for carrying a heavier load (think D850 + big telephoto), but I'm concerned about the anchors.

I know they say they are rated for a lot of weight, but they're essentially just thin strings.  To me, this looks to be the weak point of this system.  For those who use these, how have they held up?  It seems like a big risk when we're talking about carrying $7K worth of gear.

And then, I just read this article:
