    Give me some options please

    Set up my Superfly today noticed that the Nite-Ize figure 9's are fraying my Glowire line pretty bad. I like the quick and easy adjustment but I can't live with the fraying after only putting it up twice. Can you experts give me some alternatives that will be just as quick and easy that won't fray the line please? Thanks.

    You may need to check the molded condition of the nines... sharp edge (parting line?)
    .... the Aardvark (earth pig)... a rather unremarkable creature whose sole claim to fame is that it is the first animal listed in the dictionary.

    Are the firgure 9's on the ridgeline? For ridgelines, Dutch's tarp flyz are light, small and easy to use with no teeth to fray line. I don't know the size of glowire and if it is compatable with the flyz.

    The teeth in the figure 9's are chewing the line, it hasn't parted it yet but it will soon.

    Thanks. The tarp flyz should work since Dutch's latest version of them have a longer antenna to accommodate a wider variety of line.

    I actually don't mind switching to the Zing it Dutch is offering with the Flyz. Looks like a great set up.
