    Dynaglide vs Lash-it or Zing-it

    I have some of the 1.75 mm Zing it and some Dyna Glide. I have made some whoopie slings from the Dyna Glide but obviously the Zing-it in the 1.75 mm is not as strong.

    Does anyone know how the Zing-it/Lash-it 2.2 mm stacks up strength-wise to the Dyna-Glide?

    not sure what dyna-glide is rated too, but 2.2 zing-it/lash-it is rated at 650lbs a 150lbs more than their 1.75mm

    I thought I remember Dynaglide showing up as 900 - 1000 pounds.

    IIRC the tensile strength is around 600 lbs so it is not strong enough for suspension

    just out off curiosity where are you getting 670lbs for 2.2 zing-it? staring at the carton for a spool of 2.2 and it says average strength 580lbs???
