I removed Yale Vizzion because it is hard to find. I bought some for my own boat from Hamilton on sale for .72 ft in 3/8".. Yale still makes it but no one is stocking it at it's new price point.

Unfair? When VPC from Defender is only .86 ft (1.65% vs. 2.4% stretch) and the best price I could find on StaSetX is .83 -.86 ft. how is that unfair? I think it is very fair to buy VPC over StaSetX for about the same price don't you?? And guess what VPC might actually flake well!

I guess it's unfair that Defender does not sell StaSet X but has a killer price on VPC..
