    Hennessy spectra cord

    What size is the spectra line that Hennessy uses? My calipers are temporarily out of commission...

    Thanks! It doesn't tell me what Hennessy uses, but who cares! That aircore spectra looks like it will do the trick. Now I just need to find a supplier and I'll switch out to that. Thanks, again.

    If you are just replacing the cords,you might consider 7/64 Amsteel blue, which many use for whoopie slings. It has a BS of 1400 lbs and is available at most marine stores (redding marine for one).

    Loose hollow braid Amsteel is similar material to Spectra but different construction. They are significantly different in end use targets. If you are replacing existing Hennessy material you might find it worth a call or email to get the right stuff.
    YMMV

    I just got up with an f/b friend who's going to hook me up with his set of original lines, so I'll be putting those on when they come in the mail! All is now good.

    I want to thank y'all for the input and information. You've been a great help.
