    WTB: Amsteel 1/8 (3mm)

    Amsteel is kind of hard to get over here and the shipping rates from
    the sites in the US are a joke.

    So, if someone is buying and are willing to buy me some, it would be great!
    Of course i pay for the shipping and any extra expenses.

    I'm looking for around 100 feet, but are willing to take less.

    Links to sites that sell Amsteel is also welcome.

    You're closer to the Dyneema mothership than most of us. You could enquire directly with them and/or
    marine suppliers and industries which require winch lines (especially for helicopters). Dyneema/Spectra cordage is also used in paragliding and kitesurfing (and I imagine they're more likely to carry the sizes you want).

    AmSteel-Blue is essentially just a braided construction of Dyneema SK75 with a polyurethane coating; I'd be surprised if you can't find something similar over there (probably cheaper too).

    Good luck!

    If you cant find Samson rope Liros might be an alternative.
    I got my suspension ropes from bootskram.de.
    I bet there are swedish boating/sailing or surfing/gliding shops that sell some too
