Hi Smeagle, which is the reason of using core+cover? I am using 4mm DX CUP,
Is a similar solution?
I need a loop on one side, so I need a spliceable line. I couldn't find a thin splicable line, which can stand the use in a ClamCleat. I tried several, but no luck. The combination thin core line + cover works very good.

Here is an example. New line, after ~4 Sessions: (LIROS DPL 4.5mm)

The weave in the line is so loose, it is pushed together(compressed on one side of the cleat.
The rope you linked IS a line consisting of Core + Sheeting/cover! The only difference is, it is already sheeted! In my applicatione I do the splice and add the sheeting ot the spliced line. Best of both worlds. Only problem is the need to really stretch out the line fully before sheeting.

DX CUP is spliceable, but only the core, the strength of the cover is missed.

But core is narrower than your solution core.

I will try to get the materials to try it :thumb:
