Hello All, I am interested in constructing a long net and have been doing some research. I have seen reference to 20/12 spun polyester multiple times; particularly that of engel sold by fourteenacre. My problem is I am in the U.S. I cannot seem to find a supplier of this sort of twine on this side of the ocean and was wondering if anyone knew of a supplier or knew of an acceptable alternative to the 20/12 poly that was common in my country. I can get my hands on any description of twisted(spun?) nylon of various weights and colors.
I was considering this product
#9 seine twine is .042" (or 1.07mm) diameter. Does this sound about right or is it too thick?
I have used #12 seine twine which is .047" (or 1.20 mm) to make purse nets with good results.
Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
