tried them binned them ... nuff said!!

Ok in reality if your doing any team stuff (which seems unlikely based on my experiences in NSW!) then it pays to all have the same type of line and the consensus is LPG is the way ahead ... other then that there are many on here who fly on other brands/materials, Climax being one .. I found them less stable (stretchy) compared to LPG and more prone to bind up ... each to their own though

I have a background in sailing/marine trade so sourced some bulk line off a rope and line manufacturer (Liros) which nobody has yet been able to tell apart from LPG .. never had any issues and saved myself a considerable amount ... its 60 daN and comes in 1000m reels (DC0000-0060) .. white by choice!

Will bring you some next time I'm in town :)

Same here, in our team we fly Climax most of the time.
No problems during wraps etc. The lines need some adjustment after a while.
Feeling is good.

Today, after a long period, i flew LPG again...I must admit they are great (maybe even better)..less stretch..more stable.

Or is it just my feeling..?

It's not the size of your Rev.. its how you use it.
Seven days without flying a Rev makes one weak.

I had a set of 80 lines with the Climax line and I liked it, it lasted quite a while. I still prefer LPG but, it's certainly a step up from Berry Blue :-)

I have used climax lines before and still have some in the bag, once the initial stretch and creep have been taken out of them ( flying a Rev 1 is good for doing that ) they are perfectly ok, going with what you can afford is usually what I do.

This is not true!

Three out of four are flying with LPG most of the time and IMHO this is the best line you can get.
Nevertheless climax profiline is a good line but has more stretch.

We used Climax Orange lines when we started team flying about 2 years back as it was quite cheap, its ok, but its two main faults are that the orange colour makes the line hard to see and with the team flying it wore out very quickly, this gave us loads of problems in raps.

A year ago we changed to LPG, and have not had any of the above problems.
