I found a new cord supplier that has lower prices. Its the same cord as before with the only difference being a lower price. This savings is being passed on to my customers. The only problem is I purchased all their instock cord. They are saying it will be a few weeks before they can get more cord and hopefully the prices will be the same. The new price is $16.95 with free USPS ground shipping (usually takes 3-4days). Mountainfitter.com
Side Note: Instead of calling it 2.2mm Dyneema Cord, I want to come up with a relly good cord name. Any suggestions?

Neon Synthetic Hemp Cordage. Definitely.Dec 3, 2010 at 1:01 pm #1670525
My suggestion is to turn the 2.2 into a .22
Neon Fiber .22
Maybe I'll be in a more creative mood later.Dec 3, 2010 at 1:06 pm #1670528
Howabout Duraline?Dec 3, 2010 at 1:29 pm #1670534
It's simple, short, effective and to the point.
Oh, and catchy.
Thumbs up.Dec 3, 2010 at 1:30 pm #1670536

What Joe said!Dec 5, 2010 at 9:52 pm #1671259
Thanks Guys, I like all the names. KlineLine is cool because it would make my family proud and kind of has a ring to it. Duraline is a good because the stuff is super durable. Dynee-mite is good because it sounds like a bomber type line. Do you think I could use this name if I switched to a spectra based product? Reason I ask is because I am working with a braider to come up with my own line. I am hoping for 1.8mm hi-viz yellow or hi-viz orange with black and reflective tracers. They are currently seeing if its something they can do as well as pricing Dyneema vs. Spectra. Think Kelty Triptease but no core, no stretch and weight rated to 500+lbs.
Side Note: The braid is a really tight 12 strand.Dec 5, 2010 at 11:09 pm #1671269

Oh yeah, I like that. I'd be replacing all my tarp & tent lines!Dec 7, 2010 at 10:50 am #1671798
Do you prefer a single braid or a double braid cord? If one over the other then why? Say both were comparable in size, weight, and strength.Dec 7, 2010 at 11:14 am #1671805
In diameters used on sailboats double braid provides for ways to make very strong eye splices.
I do not KNOW if this translates to small diameter cordage but I seem to recall seeing that done with braided fishing line.Dec 8, 2010 at 5:06 pm #1672363
Howabout the name Guywire? Sounds tough as nails…
Looks like my dream cord cannot be made, especially at my mind boggling dream price. I however have found a company to make me a very nice cord. Its a urethane coated orange 1.8mm solid braid spectra rated to 800lbs. The urethane coating and the solid braid construction works well for holding knots. I think I will be able to offer it for a limited time at $12.95 per 50' just so the product can get some exposure. You will never find this kind of cord for this kind of pricing. If anyone is interested please let me know. I want to make sure the company makes me enough and I don't run out.. They are fitting my production run in this time but next time they said it could be a few weeks to a month. Oh I almost forgot, the price includes free shipping.

GuyWire is perfect. Bring it on!Dec 8, 2010 at 6:43 pm #1672409
