best cord for big bros? 22-Aug-2017 At 9:04:50 PM robbio
Attention fellow big bro owners:

So i have a bunch of big bros that need cord. Trango recommends slinging with 5.5 tech cord that has a breaking strength of at least 3000 pounds (13.6KN).

No nearby outdoor shops seem to sell anything like this (everyone sells 5mm accessory cord, but that's only 5-6KN of so).

Anyone had any luck with any specific cords?

Has anyone used 5mm (actual size is 5.5mm) blue water titan dyneema cord for this purpose? If so does it thread through the holes ok?

I have heard that Beal 5.5mm dyneema cord is a tad spoogy to thread through the holes easily despite being the recommended thickness. Same problem with the Edelweiss aramide 5,5 cord supposedly.

Maxim 5mm tech cord sounds promising, but i can't find it online...

I have emailed trango but i am impatient so i thought i should annoy chock stoners while i am at it.
