Re: Dyneema Cord/Poly Webbing Jacklines Questions

9/16" tubular webbing fits easily over 1/4" Amsteel and would easily do the job. There are Dyneema chafe guards that are utter over kill for this application.

But as Evans pointed out, the eyes are neat double strength, so just pulling the 1" webbing up over the splice is more than enough.

On the other hand, I use 1/2" rope, since I run mine on the corner of a very low cabin, not the floor. Much better hand-hold than webbing and much better UV durability.
