    I bought some nylon and cotton webbing at what seemed a fair price but can't google specifics about it.

    I think the nylon is stronger than the 100% cotton though? I'm also looking at a roll of 125 yards of 1" nylon military tubular for $79.00 which seems like a fair price too. It looks like regular 1" mountain climbing tubular to me which when I used to buy it had a breaking strengh of 5000 pounds.

    Any line experts out there? What I'm looking for is definitions in the types. They use some of the following terms when listing:

    Type XII
    Type III
    Type IIA
    Type II
