The D-power trim line / chicken loop line on my 2009 Naish Cult is about to tear and I want to replace it.
Does anyone here know if I should be using 3/16" or 1/4" Spectra line?
Its so close that I cant tell.

Much easier to get one from your local Naish store
But if you decide to attempt making one up yourself please make sure you insert a 2mm piece of hard dyneema line, like bridal line, in the core of the Spectra line, otherwise it will flatten too much and slip in the cleat. edit: is actualy 30cm long , from webbing.
You will note that the original line has this in the cleat area
