All the praises about whoopies made me curious and I am willing to go and try to make a pair or two for myself (I noticed last week that I could use a lighter pack… )
I read a bunch of posts, and while the making process seems quite easy, the sourcing of suitable material here in Switzerland is not. Impossible to find a dealer or an online shop that carry Amsteel-Blue or DynaGlide.
Sure, I could order it in the USA, but I am not much fond of paying more in shipping rate than for the string. Besides, I would then rather order nicely made whoopies at whoopieslings.com
I would try local nautic shop, but I am not quite sure what exactly to ask for either…
I found this:
As I understand, it is 1.8mm Dyneema "throw line" used by arborists. 40€ for 60m (~.25$/foot).
Or this one:
It is 12 strands Dyneema (380kg for the 2mm / 900kg for the 3mm)
It comes at 1chf/meter (2mm) or 1.40chf/meter (3mm), so ~.40$/foot
Are they good for our use?
Any other/better adress or advice?
Thanks in advance for your time.
