TM slinks on SigmaII mains - anybody doing it? How's it working?

Recommended Posts

Have been for a while now. Found the slink and risers are getting beat up from the slider. I covered them with a piece of plastic tubing I got from Home Depot. Seems to be working great. make it about 3' long to be sure and keep the slider away from everything.

Dacron lines do create a lot of friction. Have you ever slid your hands up a set of Dacron lines too quickly?
Hah!
Hah!
You will only make that mistake once!

As for Vectran ???? less "felt" friction, but I wonder how much Vectran abrades slider grommets???

Made a few sets of soft links out of a bit beefier line than the PD ones put them on my Vectran lined tandem canopies with a protector over them and have a few hundred jumps with no problems. Twice as strong as a french link as I broke a few in the tensile tester.
