    I use the 1.75mm exclusively.
    If you order from Redden Marine, don't forget to take advantage of the HF members discount.

    FWIW, I like the 2.2 mm. It's a bit easier for my fumble-fingers to work with.

    1.75mm
    1.92 oz/100 ft
    Avg Strength 500 lbs.
    $25.67/180 ft spool @ Redden

    2.2mm
    2.56 oz/100 ft
    Avg Strength 650 lbs.

    Oops Sorry, I thought the question was concerning thicknesses of Lash-it, not Lash-it vs Zing-it.

    The 2.2 is slightly easier to work with. But either one can be spliced.
