Please note that the responsibility for choosing the correct product falls
solely on the buyer. I have attempted to present as much information as
possible to help make an educated decision. Ultimately it is up to the buyer to
make a judgement call. If you are unsure, please don't hesitate to ask if this
product is right for you. All published Safe Working Loads and Break Strengths
have come from the manufacturer, and Wet Tech Rigging claims no responsibility
for these strengths.
Suggested line diameters are based on Dyneema SK62/Vectran/UHMWPE and
Polyester-cored lines. Wet Tech Rigging are more than happy to provide friendly
advice for all our products, so please contact us for sizing recommendations
for higher modulus grades of Dyneema (SK75, SK78, SK99) with higher break
strengths than "basic" SK62-grade Dyneema.
Wet Tech Rigging can also provide:
Friendly advice on material selection and strength requirements
