I wonder if these terminals would work with Prym elastic... might be worth a try.

Hello All

I found some days ago some oval rigging nylon fishing line posted, but for the life of me I can't find out where it was. I was just wondering if anyone here might have seen it and have a link. It's no fun getting old and forgetful :)

Cheers
Andrew

Id be interested in that Andrew,

PE rigging just doesnt do it for me, personally, Ive yet to see a convincing solution for flat wire..

Well I've taken the plunge so more news later. I figure this may be better than photoetch. So the truth is out there, somewhere.
