    Last question for a while, which cord.

    I am switching over to a setup like this, but not sure where to get this type of spectra ?? cord.

    I guess I want 1000 lb cord or something close.
    Need about 4'

    Does someone remember the cord someone found (Headchage4U ?) a while back that was very close if not the same as some of the bear bag line sold by BPL.com? It was much cheaper buying from the supplier too!

    Send me a PM with your mailing address. I'd be happy to send you some 7/64" Amsteel Blue in grey color at no charge.

    Ended up using some 1/8" Amsteel Blue in blue.

    1/8" is rated at 2500#. With eye splices it should retain 90+% of the rating.

    Note from the legal department: Use at own risk.

    I made up, and still have, a couple sets like that. They are listed in the first post here....

    Are you thinking of the New England Rope 2mm Dynaglide that TeeDee mentioned in this post?

    Not sure. This was a gray (silver) colored line that someone provided a picture of. They may have showed a close-up, side by side comparison of the newly found line beside the stuff that came from BPL.com.
