    Carultch is correct, at least from a theoretical standpoint. Contact area does not effect the friction force. In the real world, there are several reasons this doesn't always hold true, i.e. deformity. Also, see this:

    Wiki link to TIRE traction..really...we are talking wire, contact points, lubricant and pull tension and lab results from companies that actually make wire....classic.

    No need to have a tantrum. I did fully acknowledge theoretical vs real world are likely different.

    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, however....

    A theory is only as good in practice as the person who has the theory.

    In practice one notices something pulls hard, but isn't always looking at every possible reason why it pulls hard or what is different this time then that other time that seemed to go pretty well.

    Lab testing will try to make all conditions the same except for whatever condition they are testing for differences on.

    Real world installations may have differences that the user isn't really all that aware of at times.

    Unless you have multiple parallel runs that are for the most part identical and for whatever reason notice a difference from one to another, it is hard to say you had the same conditions on two different pulls that are not necessarily identical in every aspect
