Re: DIY Float Line Help

Old thread, but when I made my tubed floatlines I used PU tubing. It is way more abrasion resistant than the softer PVC. But not all PU tubing is created equal. Some of it is too stiff, while the softest is just about soft enough for floatline use.

To get the dyneema through, I went to a friend's highrise building, dropped the tubing over the balcony and inserted the dyneema into the tube with some small fishing lead balls clamped to it. I was alone, too so no one to pull on my tubing...
