its 3mm or may be four, 80c/meter is too much, i paid less than 10 dollars for 30 meters, i also have spare few meter of it, if you like i can send you a sample of it;)

murat, i should have been more specific with the price. 80 south african cents. that puts the pice up to about R2/m which is about 0.25 euros/m. dont stress about the samples, but thanks for the offer.

the 2mm dyneema lite wasnt that strong, 87kg, with the 4mm rope taking 150kg. the 2mm nylon took 80kg! all the failures were at the knot, so its not real tensile strength, but then we all use knots anyway.
next question is, is 87kg strong enough?

Hi Griff,

Dynema as far as I know can't be coloured. It is only available in white. Any colour is another fibre, hence the low break strain. 2mm Dynema is around 260 kg break strain but does weaken at knots.

Rob.

The dynema (core) must be splice to obtain full strength, knots are no good.

We use a red polyurethane compound to protect the lines (the ones with out a cover) we use on boats. Once apply the line have more cohesion and the color change to red/white. The fiber last better, is easier to work with and the product add some UV protection. I will try to get the name of tit and where he can be found.

Thanks Rob, I'm one of those NZ you replace a barrel... Thanks for that: the new one seems perfect (try to -20m).
