    confused with APS Spyderline

    First off, if I want to order some for a ridgeline for a 4x10 DIY, how much do I need to order? 10 feet exactly or what?
    Second,
    I don't understand where on the website you can order it by foot/yard? I have tried and it just let's me order by quantity. How much line is in a quantitiy? What am I missing here!?

    More quesitons to come. I went to Walmart and scored some fabric. I almost pulled the trigger the day before at Hancocks for 6.99 a yard for some sil. Instead I paid 99 cents for some taffetta. So much cheaper for my first DIY.

    I'm nervous!

    10' might work but I'd get maybe 11' just to be safe. Considering knots.
    My DIY ridgelines are around the 101" mark.
    I believe each qty=1'

    Quantity is in 'feet'. When I called to ask that question the guy laughed and said they get about 15 calls a day asking the same question. You'd think they'd be on the phone with the webmaster.
