    I had to ship a mail order of my no coil sink rope and i though you guys would like to see this, i packed 300' of the rope into medium sized flat rate box.

    What's the diameter on that line? I'm not shrimping, but it looks like it would be dandy anchor line.

    It looks like it beats the hell out of the ground line I'm using! Any problems with chaffing or breaking?

    Its 9/32" just a hair under 5/16". I know of a couple of guys using it for anchor line. I'm planning on having it in larger sizes next season for anchor lines.

    Keep us posted. I think we're using 7/16" soft lay and hand pulling. We're fishing deeper water than usual these days, and there's plenty of room in the chain locker for more, but if I'm trading in for a longer line, yours looks even better. A 300' shot would be just right.

    I really like this stuff too...very easy to work with by comparison to the normal stuff we have all used...thanks again Steve for making it easier. I was able to stomp 600' into a normal milk crate.

    Oh man we just lugged 2 600' shots of our old line down to the boat - this new stuff looks pretty sweet compared to that stuff! How is the price compared to leaded 5/16ths?

    Think you could stuff 600' in a large flat rate box? Is it tuff enough to handle 5 42" Landers?

    I know its tough enough but i don't think i can get that much in a FRB. PM me your zip code and i'll see what parcel post will cost ya to SE. If it were me i'd use floating rope between the pots and the braid for buoyline.
