Does anyone know anything about the Spectra Core Wakeboard Rope and Handle for sale on ebay aslo known as Bullet Ski Lines? They seem to be a good deal but I don't want to buy a peice of crap.
Heres the ebay link:

I wouldnt bid on a private auction, he probably has a friend or another name where he bids the price up.

Yea that is true Clint but I have been watching all his other products he sells, some are of the same thing and they usually come out to the price range of 80 dollars. So Clete does the rope stretch at all and is the handle soft.

Even if he is, $50 is about half of what you can usually get an accurate jacket for.

Yea except there arent any decent places in town that sell wakeboards. I mean yea we have the shops that sell the 200 dollar completes but none of them sell top of the line products. Most places around here are strictly surfing or skating.

The link Karl put up. Now the link you just put up is the line I just bought and am trying tomorrow. Although I noticed that the ebay now says that the length is 80' total, I thought it was 70' total?, no worries though, it is the same spectra line and handle I bought, same color too. I'll post up Fri night when I get home, look for it!

i bought the same rope and it is great so far. it does stretch when you first get it but once the fibers set it doesnt budge. the handle is very comfortable too

Alex,
Rope worked great, no stretch, a little stiff (tangley) until it gets used a bit but overall I'm happy. The handle is very comfortable! Go for it if the price is good.

I have one of those ropes that replaced my old yellow jacket/ belmont handle. They are basically the exact same rope. The handle from bullet lines is pretty nice too, plus it is half the price. I bet they do bid up the price since they do all go for about the same price.

I bought a fat sac from bulletskilines on ebay and watched it for some time before purchasing. He obviously has a silent bidder in action, but all you have to do is keep track and see about what they usually sell for and bid that much as late as possible as you can.

I have a bullet setup - works great, haven't noticed any stretch whatsoever. Comfy handle too.

The line is stiff and can tangle, but so does every spectra i've ever been around.
