Re: Reel Line?

Should be the same as any other dyneema and I know people who buy very similar throw ropes in large spools for reels as well. I would go for it.

The colors on those lines fade. Turning almost white. You can see once you get it wet that the water drippings are colored. Otherwise seems to be as strong.

Re: Reel Line?

I bought that same line. I don't plan to use it. It says it's 2.2mm but it's thicker than that, if you compare it to other lines like Fling-it. I measured it to be around 2.5-2.6mm. It also has a loose core, if that matters to you.

I can also take a pic of the lines side by side in a bit if you want to see it.
