Help! line matrial question

Post  cmulder Sun Feb 13, 2022 5:05 pm

AM looking to try another kind of line material besides the common cox dracon string.
One name i see a lot refers to "spider wire" .
A quick check showed its a company making fishing lines.
So there are many diferent versions of "spiderwire"

Could somone recomend ONE EXACT version (a link to the uk amazon site would be perfect)  used with cox powerd models.

Thanks

While yes, many use SpiderWire, and there are many varieties of it, I have switched from dacron to the following: (click on AliExpress Fishing Line link below)

AliExpress Fishing Line

I use the yellow (for visibility) and the strength is 114M-0.16mm-20LB here for my 1/2a planes and it is working just fine. As well, it is very cheap. I am thinking it is also available to you in the UK.
