    Allright, I know this is worthless without pics, Ill get them up after dinner.

    I made a whoopie sling out of the 3/16 Amsteel Blue. And looking at the bury entrance and exits... They are noticeably more deformed compared to the 7/64. Im wondering if the derate of the line due to a whoopie sling applies more to the larger diameters.

    The 3/16 is a 12 strand, like the 1/8 and up. So essentially, and please someone correct me if Im wrong... But your stuffing more line between the strands on the larger line than on the smaller.

    Food for thought till later.

    Re-test on the 7/64 whoopie produced the desired results.

    It gave at the exit of the adjustable bury and at 1676 pounds.

    A whoopie in Dynaglide gave at 931
