Re: Strip: Debating over hull glass

I use a special abrasion resistant cloth like polyester, (Sweet Composites) Zynole, or Dynel (Defender Industries).

I agree that Dynel is better than glass for abrasion resistance.
Can you get those fabrics to wet out 'transparently' ? I never have.
It wouldn't bother me but some would be aghast!
