Linewearing on the UPT Stowless Mainbag. Can't Post

Hello Guys...
I have a stowless mainbag since a year and have a relative strong linewearing on the full length of my Velo lines.

How is your experience with the UPT stowless mainbag?

Can you post some pics of the line wear? Would be good to see how you pack it if you do anything different from what Greg does in his video here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owTptLiwjKc

Have had the bag in both of my rigs for at least a year if not more. I have not noticed any excessive line wear on either of them.

I did about 40 jumps with that kind of pod and my velo lines have been still plain, now about 40 jumps later the lines hairy on the full length except 30cm up from the risers and about 30 cm down from the canopy at the point where you fix the lines with the tubes.

MY lines are 500 Vectran.

Do you know what kind of lines, Vectran or HMA would be more resistant against wearing on the stowless mainbag.

Do you have different experience on different linetyps?

Im about to buy stowless bag from vector so im asking you.
With vectran lines, it is normal to become kinda fuzzy and turn grey, but i do not know how much damage is on your line without the pics.
