Nylon or Dacron ?

I guess we can asume that you''re talking about older line. Generally, nylon has more stretch/elasticity. However, as it ages it gets stiffer and it becomes harder to tell - especially with less expensive "non-marine" cordage.

Can you provide a little more information - like why you are asking this question?
