Curiosity has me wondering how Vectran compares to Spyder line. I currently am and have been using 2.8mm Spyder line in combination with 1 inch Polypro Straps on my set up. Seeing how I'm going to be upgrading my straps to 1 inch Polyester, I was planning on replacing the Spyder line at the same time. I thought I might upgrade to the Vectran for added tensile strength at the 3mm size. But, I don't know the knotting and holding characteristics of Vectran I have know experience with it.
So before I go and buy some expensive rope I thought I would ask how does the Vectran compare to Spyderline in it's handling characteristics? Will it hold on itself or does it slip? Is it Stiffer or more rigid, etc? Any other characteristics in comparison to Spyder Line? Should I just buy some new Spyder Line and forget about the Vectran stuff? Any help is Appreciated, Thanks!
