    PIF Pay it Forward 7/64 Spectra for whoopie, loop, shackles

    At a senior's suggestion, (even if he was born later than I was ) this has been moved to the main PIF thread. Find it there.

    DO NOT REPLY HERE. GO TO MAIN PIF THREAD

    Please: A day or two wait, before folks with my opportunity to visit a real bricks and mortar boating supply store for sample lengths of Amsteel jump in.

    Two items:
    Before Amsteel Blue there was Spectra (and Vectran) and other line / rope made of similar fiber with similar strength, but different handling properties.

    I took a position in what a rocketeer (I think) thought was 1/8" Spectra, but which weighs per ft the same as 7/64 Amsteel. I doubt it's strength is 1000lb, but would be confident it is more than 500. 8 strand, very spliceable, just as demanding of blades for cutting as Amsteel blue. I may have been risk-taking / foolish to hang from it over concrete; but it is excellent for learning to splice and for ridgelines and whoopies for tarps.

    1. 30 ft. of the above Spectra rope
    2. 30 ft. of the above Spectra rope

    This stuff is light. I will post a 1st class envelope of it anywhere in the world.



    1. The item offered above is free and I will pay shipping. (CONUS only)
    2. You must also "Pay it Forward" by posting something free (must be worth the cost of shipping).
    3. Your "Pay it Forward" offer must come with the same terms as this one.
    4. 1st to post they want it gets it. PM your address after taking a PIF.
    5. You cannot claim a PIF unless you are a donating member.
    6. You cannot claim more than one PIF every 48 hours, no exceptions.
    7. You cannot claim another PIF until your posted PIF gets taken. (change it up if it doesn't go fast enough)
    8. These rules can't be changed or modified throughout the entire thread.

    Offered again: See PIF rules below.

    (This stuff is light. I will post a 1st class envelope of it to anywhere in the world. No such obligation on other PIFs in this thread)

    Before Amsteel Blue there was Spectra (and Vectran) and other line / rope made of similar fiber with similar strength, but different handling properties. This may be the same product as the unavailable Aircore Plus.

    I took a position in what a rocketeer thought was 1/8" Spectra, but which weighs per ft the same as 7/64 Amsteel Blue and Aircore Plus. So it likely is 7/64." I doubt it's strength is 1500lb, but it is more than 500lb strength and is likely 1100lb.

    50 ft. of the above white 8 strand Spectra cord

    IF this was offered in another PIF thread, let's keep them as together as possible. I'm closing this one since you said you had posted the same pif in another thread.
