This is all I could find to buy:
http://www.premiumropes.com/ropes-for-b ... tions=cart

I'd be interested in other sources

Still working on an english site....
Thanks, but your lines go down to 180kg. Not less than premium ropes.

Flysurfer will provide 0.7mm lines if nicely asked for;)
Do you have a contact in FS for that ? I am interested.
I remember seeing discussion with some prices as well, can't find the link tho. Shoot an email to FS...

FWIW I measured the diameter of my Q-Power line bar lines today.

Q-Powerline Pro 600 lb = 1.5 mm
Q Powerline 300 lb = 1.3 mm

This 1mm SK-99 Premium Ropes Alpha Ropes line is looking nice to me. Thanks for the links. I ordered enough for a 20m line set for an old bar that needs refurb.

Here is an option for Liros DC Pro. Maybe will ship to USA? I'm think .83 mm (400 lb) rear and 1.1 mm (584 lb) front. No jumps.
