    Looking for the least expensive source for 3/32 Black Dacron double-braid rope. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Seller on ebay called cobrarope. Bought 1000 ft plus from them, no problems at all.

    Just looked at Cobra and their site doesn't show 3/32" Dacron rope. :(

    That's okay.............no biggie. Just wanted to let you know.

    Davis RF has it for .08/foot in 500 foot quantity. I haven't found it any less anywhere else.

    I get the 3/32" direct from the manufacturer, Synthetic Textiles in Anaheim, CA.

    But I think the smallest quantity they sell "direct" is a 1000' spool. Maybe not, it's been a few years.

    Thanks, I'll check with them on Monday. I know I don't need a thousand feet....................probably more like 200 feet, but was willing to order 500 "just because" I might need it in the future.
