    I'll have to look into those rings next time. Mine are about 2" in diameter. Narrow ones would be nice.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Yeah, notice the 1, 1.25, and 1.5 all have the same working load so you're not giving up strength buy using the smaller rings.

    I got the 1.5 ID, but it seems a little wider than 1.5 inches. So I'd order the 1.25 if ordered again.
    I got 1.25" ID. The ones I got are about 1/16 under 1.25". My advice is to stick with the 1.5" ID. Much easier to work with.

    That's a pretty good price. The ones I found were $.14 per foot. I wonder what the weight and diameter is.

    Well, I am ordering it and will find out. I am sure, since it is spectra, it is probably about 1/8" and light.

    Customer service there seems decent. There was an error when ordering my line, so I called them and they processed my order over the phone. They said they would send it out in an envelope that way I wouldn't have to pay the crazy $8 for ups. So call them if you want to order any.

    I wonder why the lighter weight-rated Spectra costs more than the heavier weight-rated Spectra.

    Giving smaller cord that much strength probably requires more expensive materials and construction. Lots of engineering goes into that stuff.

    You're thinking backwards. The 550 # rated Spectra costs 90 cents, the 725# Spectra costs $1, and the 1000# Spectra costs 90 cents. But the 1500# spectra only costs 35 cents. Go figure.
