    Hi J, when do you think you'll be posting the gear out please ?

    I've got a new tarp arriving shortly and a trip with it planned for next weekend so hoping to have the dyneema beforehand if you can manage it ?

    Cheers, Paul

    The manufacturer has emailed to say there will be a slight delay. I will keep you all posted as and when it arrives.

    Sorry for the delay

    Can't wait any longer I'm afraid so have ordered elsewhere.

    If someone who missed this group buy wants to take over my order for 40m in black then let me know, otherwise I'll just keep it or sell it on if not needed when it does turn up.

    Cheers, Paul

    Just had an email from them. They have a new production run of the black they are going to send me a sample today, so that I can confirm it is ok. It has the same strength and everything, I just need to test it's knot holding, and will also run it through some line locks.

    They will confirm the situation on the yellow tomorrow morning. Hopefully we should have things moving very soon now.

    Again, apologies for the delay, Hopefully once this manufacturing issue is sorted, future group buys will be faster.

    Thanks

    Julia

    So the sample has arrived in the post, as a manufacturer they have done something that is rather rare. They have improved a product so it is actually better. Usually "New improved" is another way of saying "messed with and made worse". The cord they have sent as a test sample is softer than the previous stuff, meaning it holds knots a lot better, and if you have a quick release knot, it undoes a lot easier than previously. I've tried tying a few knots and putting weight on the line, Evenk hitch, bowline, double figure of eight, and a line loc. All worked fine. So I will notify them tomorrow that it is good to post the cord to me!

    I think we might be on the home straight now!

    Thank you everyone for your patience.

    Julia

    Any updates please Julia ?

    I was a bit concerned when I called them recently about something else and took the opportunity to ask about the 2mm dyneema, they were quoting 4 to 6 weeks still as out of stock and needing to manufacture ! Hopefully they just have their wires crossed and the info' they are giving you is the correct situation !

    Cheers, Paul

    Englishbraids should be posting me the black out today, or Monday. So hopefully that will arrive early next week, I can then get the stuff measured out and in the post to those who ordered just black asap.

    They should let me know on the yellow middle of next week.

    Thanks

    Julia

    Group buy 2 has gone in now, I am just awaiting the cord to arrive so I can send it out to people. If you watch this space, as soon as I get this group buy in the post, I will put up the details of group buy number 3.

    Thanks
