1) Is Uschi van der Rosten still producing rigging thread? Can't find it in any of the shops. All sold out.

2) I had a fret of PE signal lines with pulleys by Ocean Spirit (I think), again, can't find any in stock anywhere. Anybody seen any?

No idea about the Ocean Spirit stuff, but I've ordered the Uschi van der Rosten line directly from them at https://www.uschivdr.com/shopping-categories/shop-rigging-and-various/

For some reason the above "Site cannot be reached" page comes up!

They've got Infini Model 40 den. Probably the same as Uschi.

Biggles,

The Uschi and Infini are not the same thing. Infini falls more in line with EZ Line.

At the moment I have all three in my rigging kit. I like the Infini over the other two.
