SeaFurl 5 Replacement line

I measured the line with calipers and it was 1/4" of 6mM . But the line is old . Any ideals on replacement line???? About 1/3 seems flat with the core removed.

line

6mm T-900 very strong, durable and reasonably priced. If you milk the cover back and extract the core you can cut off as much as you like. This saves space on the drum.

I'd second T900 line, but wouldn't suggest removing the core as suggested by Captainmidnight. The problem with doing that is the core is the bulk of the strength in T900. You'd be much better off cutting off the cover, rather than the core.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
