    Dutch Flyz

    Ok, so I know dutch flyz are designed to work specifically with zing it 1.75mm, but I was just wondering if it worked with different diameter lines, I found this:
    http://www.frjonesandson.co.uk/produ...throwline-50m/
    It is less than half the price of zing it and has a higher strength rating, as far as i can make out it is a hollow braid line and basically the same stuff so I was just going to buy it. However I wanted to have some Dutchware and I've never seen anything posted about anyone using different lines with dutch Flyz. So will it work?

    Thanks

    Craig

    should work, that line looks like a generic zing it

    I was thinking it would, it was was mostly because it is only 1.5mm instead of 1.75mm that I was a bit dubious.

    i have 2.2 zing it and it doesn't really work, i mean it's tight but it snags around the antennae and can only wrap once.

    I use 1.9 tech line no problem.
    No reason the smaller line won't work in the flyz, at worst you might have to take an extra turn around the antenna.

    I use it with dyneema, 1.75 zing it and no -tangle all with no issues so far. Seems fine on small diameter line.

    You can open the antenna a little and it will work although it was designed for 1.75.
