1/8" Dyneema (http://a.co/7lzhjGA) on my Marsh Tacky CF riggers. The hollow Dyneema is nice because there are no knots or crimps needed anywhere - it's hollow so you can splice it easily. I got a cheap hollow aluminum knitting needle and cut about 4" of the end off to use as my fid. Piece of coat hanger is the pusher. Also using Hal-lock pulleys.

Above pics from other day.
Did the Gemlux center rigger today. Came out great.
( forgot to grab pics. Maybe later)
This material is awesome to rig. Used black for center rigger.

400 pound mono
Run through Hal-Locks
Attached to thin line
Run through holes drilled in the gunwales (lined to prevent abrasion)
Run through cam cleats under the gunwales so you can adjust the tension

I just rigged my new boat. Used spyderline in black, purple and red using Hal-Locks and the Gemlux set up. Worked nice. Can be deployed from the gunwale or hardtop and stores nicely.

Anyone try 300lb mono on the Gemlux 22 deluxe retractables? Thats what Gemlux recommended when I asked about a better line than the 400lb mono. Tired of the 400lb mono getting sticky running through the rollers.

400 lb mono way better than that Spyder shit. When you lock up the Spyder shit to prevent creeping it gets chewed up easy. Shit is NG for serious fishing.

no issues w spyder here. Professional racing sailing teams been using it for years. And locking them down.
Maybe different mfgr quality, I will give u that.
Like everything else in the world, So get it frim a legit sailing site and should be good. I can only speak from the Cord I have and still as good as new.
The Spyder is Not the same crap material as what comes w the outrigger “deluxe rigger kits”.
The Spyder is sailing Dyneema.
Completely different animal.

I've had these on for over a year. Great product, although non-existent customer service.

I've been using 400 mono, it's crap, but these rollers make it easier.

I'm switching to Spyder pretty soon. Do most of y'all crimp or tie your connections when using Spyder line ?

I crimp on snap swivels so I can change clip types without a hassle.

I have everything to triple rig with spider line just haven’t gotten around to it yet. I think if you want to crimp you will have to go up to a 500 lb size. You would think just based on diameter of the spyder line 400 would work but I believe because it’s limp unlike mono it’s tough to thread through. If I don’t have any crimps that’l Work I’ll just tie a uni and marine heat shrink over knot... should be a clean look.

400LB mono. Use a longline clip instead of hal locks.

Not to mention it's either too loose or too tight depending on the temp. I'm always adjusting the tension.

I'm using tuna cord now, but I will probably try that sailrite stuff later this season.

Yes so. The shit falls apart where you lock it.
