Much as I hate to dampen your enthusiasm boys and girls, there is one rather large problem. Samson products are not sold on Isle of Wight.

We use Intrepid which is a plaited polyester. Soft in the hand, grippy on the winch and looks salty enough. Does not hockle which is good too.

Dockhead wants 16mm. The pigeons won't carry more than 10mm.
