dynaglide

this is my first time using this throw line, when i first got it i had a hard time holding on to it, it is a lot more slippery than my previous lines (zing it) i bought it because my ground man always snaps my zing it line when it gets caught up in a tree, i got tired of using zing it for a week then having to buy a new one because the old one broke, so i bought this, so far ive had it for two week and it seems bullet proof, or as i call it, sean proof. once the new feel wore off of it i got used to throwing with it and havent had many problems, it does pick a bit easy but ill take that any day over it breaking contantly

Don't buy this throwline.

Dynaglide has some problems. Being made from Dyneema/Spectra fiber, it is SUPER strong for its size. Unfortunately, strength is about the least important factor in choosing a throwline. It is woven to loose. This causes the fibers to fray FAST in use. I have a hank that I used only in 3 trees and it already looks just as worn as some of my throwlines that have seen 3 or 4 years of heavy use.



The fast fraying mean this rope will wear out faster.



The bright colors make it SUPER easy to see in the tree. The coating they used wears off quickly, however. With use, the rope will quickly fade to a light grayish color that blends in with the sky.
