sounds like a great idea. anyone else try this?FredBGG wrote:Archery bow string wax is great.
Specially designed to avoid line ware.
Comes in a big chapstick.
Break some off into a rag and rub it on to the depower line.
Do it quite aggressively to melt the wax into the inner fibers too.
The result is very nice. Nice slippery wax finish, but does not cause a problem for cleats.
Lines last a very long time this way

On bars with the old-style strap-n-buckle trimmer it's worth giving these straps a nice wax-rub-job every so often, especially in salty water as these tend to stiffen up and jam.
Yes, I was aware of that and only applied wax on the Trim rope and the pigtail.edt wrote: ↑Wed Sep 16, 2020 1:16 pmBe careful applying wax as dyneema degrades at around 140c and if you apply it too hot you ruin your line. I never wax lines but do it for leaders and the chicken line
I use beeswax which catches on fire around 100c so you can't accidentally ruin your line
It's easy to build a q power line set if you want long lasting lines
