8 strand amsteel?
Hi fellas. I've been following all the threads on the UCRs and whoopie slings.
I had some 7/64 amsteel I had bought a while back. I pulled it out this morning thinking of doing this mod. I then noticed that this cord is 8-strand and not 12. I purchased this from an ebay seller, so all I know is that it was claimed to be "amsteel blue". Doing some research I did find one online seller who stated that the grey amsteel goes to 8-strand when dropping to the 7/64 size.
My concern is that 8-strand may not "constrict" as tightly in the buried section, and I now have questions about the origin of this cord so I don't fully trust it.
I'm going to keep this for other uses and order more from Redden or Annapolis for the whoopie conversion.
I'm just curious as to whether anyone else has seen 7/64 "blue" in 8-strand?
