    Much like those circles for colorblindness tests or that dress that was making the rounds on the internet a year or two ago.
    lol I was just thinking about those circles with colored dots. I think my color vision is pretty good but I can't pass that test. It nearly cost me a job... a 30-year career in fact, but I did a back-up test using colored lights and was 100% using that method. Go figure.

    And in that pic above of the spool it stands out like night and day.
    UL, because nobody ever asks "How can I make my pack heavier?"

    Out of curiosity, can someone explain what the purpose of a tracer is? And why a visible vs. non-visible tracer?

    Reflective tracers are really handy at night so you don't run into your lines. Non-reflective tracers aren't really useful to most of us. The tracer doesn't even have to be externally visible depending on how the rope is made.

    Received my green pool, same SKU and rope as posted last week, the tracer isn't stand out contrast too much, I would buy again if that's reason for discount.

    Made 2 pair of whoopie slings and a pair of CL and only used about 60' so far. This is going to last awhile.
