Liros

Postby stenner » Wed Sep 11, 2019 1:22 am

Playing devil's advocate here.
If Liros kite lines are so superior, why is it almost impossible to have a set made and shipped to the U.S.? I know of exactly one place and they are on the other side of the world and not very responsive to inquires.
Please explain.

Thanks, I'm familiar with this seller however they are not offering the latest sk99 by Liros, specifically dc- 401. Otherwise they look great with excellent pricing too.

I thought the 401 referred to the diameter 1.6mm

1.5mm would be 301.

I believe liros dc pro is the latest incarnation of kite line from liros.

The 1.7mm line from the netherlands is also a very high quality sk99 line.

Could be wrong about about liros nomenclature. Perhaps you should send an email to slav42?

I have had good luck with black box sailing shipping sK99 to USA. I do wish one of the big shops would pick up a couple of spools.

Looking at the Liros catalog, it looks like the "4" represents the breaking strength range, 490kg, and the '1" denotes that it is the "Pro" DC line vs. just plain DC

Green Hat has the line in bulk I think but do not offer finished line sets anymore, apparently they did at one point.

Liros is not the superior rope... Southern Ropes Super 12 is the strongest SK99 dyneema on the market, 2mm = 940kg linear breaking strain...that's very very strong!!

Just be careful where you order it from. I have SK99 and the lines feel like they have no coating, therefore they tangle very very easily. It's a major pain to run the lines. They also fray easily. This is from premiumropes.com in NL.
