I bought from Liros directly. 200m of the 301 and 300m of the 401 for centerlines as those wear out faster for me. 350$ USD included shipping. If you learn a brummel lock splice you are set for many years with that type of a shipment. I've got 7m extensions and 2 custom bars and plenty of line left. Even used some to tie a few heavy items down outside for hurricane IRMA lol. You don't have to be exact when making your own lineset. Just get close. Use the thicker line coming from the bar or pigtails to dial in perfectly. DM me if you want a contact at liros.

Recently got lines from Dr Tuba and Linestofly (due to different color and thickness availability). Will happily use either again.

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!!

Where did you see it's SK99?!
It says nowhere in their website that they use Dyneema at all. In Super 12 PDF they mention 32cN/dtex, which is not even close to SK99.

That’s what they say!
I got some a while back and gave 2 samples a pull test. Both failed at < 400kg. Ends were terminated with loops and long tail splice. Failures occurred at the end of the buried tail (and yes tail was well tapered!).
So it was much the same as other 2mm dyneema line rated at 380kg.

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.
