    I was just browsing the hitch cords on TS and notice no more listing for this. Went to ST, nope. Next was Teufel and again not listed. Hope this isn't someone's favorite.

    I got an email from Treufelberger saying they may still have some they can get from U.S. facilities. They wanted to know what diameter and length I wanted. Never said specifically if it is being discontinued.

    I noticed this too. I wonder if they are moving towards using the 7mm in it's place?

    I thought only the 6mm had a vectran core,but you may be right, I recently saw, maybe a ring prusik, made of 7mm with a vectran core.

    The email did ask what diameter I wanted and it was referring to vectran core cords. Maybe they are only going to use it for their spliced or sewn products from now on.
