    Hi Not Bob
    Yes, it is weird to know that dyneema/spectra are a 'type' of plastic.
    What in heaven's name are you making with all that plastic fabric?

    I understand this is supporting information for a prior post with a different application. However, the rope is now bending over a much tighter radius, losing strength. The EDK or offset overhand follow-through will hold fine, and can be backed up for peace of mind.

    On a similar note, will any future COGs have sharp or rounded edges?
