I'll take 100' if you have some left. PM sent.
Need to finish off a couple of new tarps.
Would like 200 ft if possible.

Received my Chuck-it from Demostix today and set out to see how it compares to Zing-it for splicing. I used three different splicing tools, a loop turner, a piece of CAT-5 network wire, and a Cortland "No-Knot Tool". I expected to have difficulty with the loop turner, as it's a struggle to splice 1.75mm Zing-it with it. In fact, all three worked, but the loop turner made me struggle, as expected.
The surprise came when I went to taper the end before burying it. It was easy to pull out separate strands and cut them off, but in doing so I saw the outer sheath slide back, revealing a central core of parallel strands. I'm surprised that I was able to slide the splicing tools down the center, considering the line is not really hollow core. It's easy to miss. On a subsequent splice the core didn't reveal itself at all.
Attached are a few pictures. I used a double-buried locked Brummel and a MacDonald locked Brummel. In the first picture you can see the strands I pulled out, but haven't cut off yet. I slid the cover back and cut off the last half inch of the core, which gave an even better taper to the end.
I'm not a fan of kernmantle construction, but I think this line will serve well as an economical alternative to Zing-it.
I'll take 100' if there's any left. Will send PM.

I will take 100 ft. if it is still available. Sending PM.
Any updates on how much is left?

As explained in this tale just posted, I unexpectedly want to have more of this, and more of it to sell off at the beginning of the week.
PM me. I will reply and request payment only when I have on hand what the vendor told me he shipped to me today. There will be enough for all who have expressed an interest so far.
Everyone who responded either has their cord -- unless a postal worker seized a parcel to garrotte some really offensive and blind motorcyclists -- (this stuff is really fluorescent yellow)--- or has been contacted by PM. Please consider contributing your impressions to a thread one of you starts, not here, but in the "Suspension etc. forum."
Thanks, again, to WV, for the immediate exercise of curiosity I expected of him. And a same-day-report too. My, oh my.

Spool is here to make up what was missing
100 feet for $10.60 1st Class USPS Delivery, (see first post for Priority Mail option)
50 feet for $7
25 feet for $4 ---8 pieces available for the occasionally hungry, only; and not because you have a taste for goose down, 800FP or better. (Preferably, but not required to be out of standing Paypal balances. Wink, wink, nod,nod.)
My burden is that this spool was shy even more line, an estimated 500 feet short. Also a Post Office that doesn't know the USPS definition of "large envelope first class".
Hey Demostix, was wondering how much (and if you would be willing to) it would cost to get 100ft sent to 6010 Australia? Cheers.
