Silnylon will look frayed on the very edges b/c there's a small strip where the treatment ends. Probably 1/8" or so. Run your fingernail along it and try to fray it some more. Sil will give you nothing (at least when new), while DWR or untreated will start fraying.
“Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall when the wise are banished from the public councils because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded because they flatter the people, in order to betray them.” ~Judge Joseph Story
