Crossfire with Spectra Lines Can't Post

Has anybody had experience with this? Don't the spcetra lines stretch more allowing for the canopy to get out of trim easier?

Spectra shrinks with use (due to the heat from the slider descending). But yes, they go out of trim.

Sounds like a bad idea on an elliptical to me but that's what Stilettos come with, too.

Only if you order them that way. You can get a Stiletto with Dacron too. Not sure why anybody would want it, but there ya go.

Didn't know that was available.

Seems to me that HMA/Vectran would be a more sensible choice but I guess that means a whole lot of work for PD and nobody seems to be complaining.
