Its been years since I owned any Kelty Triptease so I recently purchased some to compare it against my Glowire cord. Kind of like R&D Testing. Here is what I found. The Kelty Triptease weighs 1.39oz per 50' and has a diameter of 2.15mm. So everything you have read about it being 1.00oz per 50' and having a diameter of 3.00mm is wrong.
Now it could be that this cord is braided in china, but the reflective tracers in the Triptease braid are unbalanced and stick out past the nylon yarns. I am not sure if this is a mistake in their braiding process or someones bad idea to make the cord more reflective. BUT instead of placing the abrasion load evenly on the 14 nylon yarns and the 2 reflective tracers, the abrasion load is concentrated on the 2 reflective tracers. This means the cord will not last as long as it could.. Especially when used with LineLoc 3's.
That said, I tested my Glowire cord against the Kelty Triptease in the LineLoc 3's and found that due to its smaller diameter and being less round it doesns't work as good. The reflective tracers in the Triptease also get hung up and break. Again due to the unblananced weave. To top it all off, the Triptease is made in China and costs more then my Glowire cord.
Since I am biased. If anyone else is interested in testing the two together and reporting back here, I would be more than happy to send you some of each.
