M y information is that technora, dyneema , amsteel, are all just differnt types of spectra line. With that said (and if I am wrong , i AM SURE i WILL BE CORRECTED), i WOULD LOOK INTO 100% Technora fiber, 12 strand, single braid such as Samson's Tech 12 Line. This is excellent for use as backstays, lifelines and replacing wire halyards. So your inclination to go with a 12 strand Spectra line is right on in my opinion. Rick
