Re-slinging #11 Hexcentric? 9-May-2017 At 1:44:49 PM Grinder
I use Spectra Cord on my hexes and I think it works well. The Spectra is really durable and I have seen no signs of wear around the holes where it takes a 90 degree bend. The tight fit and the stiffer cord means the hex doesn't slide around on the cord which would be annoying. It has more flexibility than a wire and you can chose how long you want the sling to be.

Having said that, big hexes often get dropped into deep placement and the stiffness of a wire can be useful for placing them and getting them out.

In the end it will come down to your personal preference, so I'd suggest that you give the wire a go and see how you like it. There's no problems with going to the cord later, except that it's harder to go back to a wire once you've done that.
