I have an ARB Snatch strap, but I want a very good quality non kinetic tow strap as well. I don't want to buy a yellow Walmart special. I've heard the ARB tree protectors aren't good to use as a tow strap, and the winch extensions are way too long. Any suggestions?
You could get an ARB snatch strap which is the 110MM wide and the beefiest which is rated with a MBS of 15000KG. You won't get any elongation out of it because the two objects won't be heavy enough to elongate the strap.

ARB makes three versions of their orange recovery straps.

Are you just towing with the strap instead of recovery?

Do you have a shorter version? I don't think the OP is looking for something that long. The same thing but shorter would probably fit the bill.
I can arrange 2" x 10' (20,000lbs) or 3" x 10' (30,000lbs) but would need a week to ship and need to check on pricing.

You could call a local rigging shop and have them make exactly what you want.
