    This is a seriously good price, compared to sailing dyneema.
    FYI, the KN rating is multiplied by roughly 10 to get kg. This is by far the cheapest dyneema braid I have found, and its near the B/S of the others too.
    40p/metre!

    From customsplice i ended up with $1/m and here it's 1/m + shipping.
    Btw, didn't have to pay any custom fees from Customsplice.

    It's so strange that the Amsteel is so cheep over there,
    the rumor says it's originally comes from our side of the world.

    That's cheep!
    But it depends what you want to use the rope to!
    I think that's braided rope, it wont do if you wanna make whoopie slings!

    ta-dah

    marlow excel d12 3mm/17mtr reel 24.90= 1.46/mtr or 2.5mm/30mtr reel 25.50=0.85/mtr

    Thanks for the maths Turnerminator, I looked at the Needlesports link but I'm after the whoopie stuff myself. I've bought from Needlesports before back when I used to climb, in fact I think my current hammocks using a ridgeline and end ropes from there.

    Nice line , I'm a bit dubious of the rating for the 2mm stuff though since it's SK75, I might check that out. the 4 sounds like more than enough though.

    Edit: I just put in an order for some of the noname 3mm dyneema from sailingmad and for 2.5 excel max for 10/10mtr (inc pnp) from an ebay shop, I'll let you all know how that turns out.

    I've just found some 12 strand 2.5 mm Marlow D12 for 99p/ m from rope locker.
    Not as cheap as Drops link, but they sell it singly.

    I got my D12 that I used for my whoopie slings from these guys, I'm in the UK at my parents in Plymouth, they were friendly enough and looked a very professional outfit when I popped into the shop.
