This is all I could find to buy: ... tions=cart

I'd be interested in other sources ... erig/lijn/

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. ... tions=cart

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.
