Need to order some more butt cord. Squidco has Varmac in a bunch of sizes. Do the smallest numbers represent the narrowest diameter or the other way around? Thanks

    My two cents, I love squidco great shop and source… but that varmac stuff just don’t do it for me. Coring bros all the way. I use 28-36 in their stuff.
    Unfortunately I don’t have any varmac with the labels for size reference.Sorry if this wasn’t helpful.

    I'm in Santa Barbara. I went online and got a bunch, from size 6 up to 24. Thought I'd try adding some texture to the handles with some thin cord woven in. Could work out or be another lame waste of time.

    I'm ordering tarred seine cord not the varmac. Varmac isn't the greatest.
    I'll check it out, thanks Jayson

    Right, Squidco Varmac stuff is sooo tarred it stinks, and gets tar on everything. I use Squidco, but never thier twine. Koring Brothers makes the best. They were in Chula Vista, CA., for 50 years and then moved to New York. I think they got a no tax situation as bonus for taking their business there. I talked with Mr. Koring Senior, nice fellow. He said in the San Diego area, L.P. Fishing Supplies on Production Rd. in O'side CA., carried his cord. I get mine there. The smaller the number, the smaller diameter of the cord...The best. Call LP Fishing Supply in Oceanside:
    760 722-8727. Tell Goeff (Owner), Ironmike sent ya there!! He's got guides, blanks and lotsa rod building stuff.

    In the past I would wrap a handle in #36 or #42, the in between the valley of the cord I would put #12 cord. It makes for a very gripy surface.
