Thanks. This type of testing is very valuable, so I look forward to the results.

I am surprised. Cutting the material with a knife especially a slightly dull knife which is not unlike the effect of anchor rope that is caught under a rock suggests the material is much tougher than polyester, but these are just impressions not controlled experiments. Perhaps the perception is wrong.

Formally noelex77, but I cannot access that account.
