Consolidated Thread Mills
The description reads: "Consolidated Thread Mills Tarred Yacht Marlin is a 1/8 inch diameter, special cabled polyester featuring 100 percent continuous filament. It is sold in 4 ounce spooled tubes, and comes in fine and heavy types..."What are the diameters of the "fine" and of the "heavy?"Thanks.
The difrence is in braid
Heavy is 1/8", the fine is 3/32".
what is the the diff between heavy and fine ?
The fine thread is smaller so you get more length with the fine 160ft vs. 100ft of the heavy for the same money. Also the heavy is a thicker which means some more strength, thank you.NathanJD Store(401)253-3840 ex130< a href="http://firstname.lastname@example.org" target="_blank">email@example.com< /a>
Great product for moussing shackle pins to keep them in place for the season. I use it annually on the shackles and pins to secure them and quiet them down for the season. Easy to work with and last a full season in my environment.
Great Product - Lousy Service
The product is excellent but buy it somewhere else. It took two months to get to my door with no communication from Jamestown. I called after a month a was told it should ship in two days, four weeks later it showed up. Too many vendors to choose from for me to ever use Jamestown again.
It's sticky but it does a great job
I used it to whip line wrapped around pulley blocks I made from scratch.
