Group buy for DX40 on 10/19/2011 14:52:49 MDT Print View

I am looking to buy some DX40 but do not want to pay the twenty dollar cutting fee for under ten yards. Would anyone be interested in a group buy? I only need two yards.
Thanks guys

How much is it a yard? (absent the cutting fee)

I'd likely be interested.

Michael,

When did the cutting fee go up to twenty dollars? The last time I emailed Hale it was $10.00.

Party On,

Newton

David- 24$ per yardyard plus shipping. Its really burly stuff. Should be really good for pack bottoms.

Newton- I think they just recently went up. Shame too, at ten dollars a yard I would have done it but twenty is only four dollars less than the material itself.

Michael, are they out of seconds?

Javan and I got 10 yds of seconds a while back @ $12/yd. Javan made some collars for his great danes out of it, but we haven't used it for anything else so far. It's the burliest fabric I've laid my hands on, but definitely not light.

They are out of DX40 2nds. The sheet I got several weeks ago only had 3 yds left even then.

24 a yard is too dear for me at the moment.

Ordering Tuesday. If you want in it, the cutting fee will continue to become fractions of 20 so feel free to join in.

Could somebody post a photo of this fabric please.

What do you think. Would it be possible to use the DX40 as deck for snowshoes?

Re: DX40 on 10/23/2011 10:01:44 MDT Print View

There is a pack made on these forums out of it. I sent my samples to my brother but I will get him to post a picture.

What do you mean by a deck fir snowshoes? If you mean a place to strap snow shoes, then yes. This material is extremely burly. The warp is 600 denier dyneema if I remember correctly.

Ill double check when I get back home on the denier but im pretty sure that is right. It also has an 800 d dyneema ripstop and the diamond pattern usually seen on xpac fabrics.

Thank you on 10/23/2011 10:40:48 MDT Print View

I would like to add to my brothers post that the spec I received from Hale had the DX40 listed a 6.9 ounces not 7.9. I'm not sure which is correct though.

Thanks for the photos.

@Michael

I'm thinking about to make a pair of snowshoes for me and instead of a hypalon deck (MSR Lightning Ascent) I would use the lighter DX40

I do not know much about snow shoes. Maybe someone else will comment here?
