skullcap Posted March 5, 2004 Report Share Posted March 5, 2004 Just inquiring those who of you who have any insight on the use of synthetic lines on water buckets. Having just done some research, the Amsteel Blue(new name for spectra) lines have a very low tolerance for heat. Has anyone come across the problem of losing buckets and/or what measures do to you take to prevent this, ie, use cable at lower end or some type of sheathing. Am worried that if lowering bucket into crew doing IA and get too close to heat or tree blows up beside line that could lose the bucket. Have lots of experience with this myself with both steel and synthetic but have never had any problems, not sure what to do now. sc Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
