PostSubject: Group Buy - Dutchware Spider Web 1.5 (1" Dyneema webbing)   Sun 01 Jul 2018, 14:56

As posted (here) Dutchware have just made available the lightest ever 1" webbing. See the other post for details.
https://dutchwaregear.com/product/spider-web-1-5-10-feet/


I am going to do a group buy... don't worry, I have done a number of these on other forums. It's a bit of a faff, but worth it, what with shipping and import duties.
With all the shipping, VAT, Import Duty and Royal Mail handling charges, the unit cost should be £1.40 per foot (or less, depending on order size). Thanks to Dutch for giving me a 20% discount for the bulk order.
For 2 long tree straps (all the way to the hammock) you'll prolly need at least 24 - 25 foot (more, if you hang from big trees or have long spans). For  tree-huggers (to which you attach whoopie slings, etc) you can go from 4 foot up, that depends up your tree size (mine are usually in the 6 - 8 foot range). Don't forget to allow some for sewing in loops. If you can't manage a sewing machine, I can prolly be persuaded to do it for you for a couple of quid!

Here's how it works:

  • Tell me (by posting on this thread) how much you want (this is not a binding contract). I will then add you to the list in the next post.
  • Once I have everyone's requests in, I will get back to you with an updated cost estimate for your order (you pay a percentage of the shipping etc, depending on the size of your order), if you are happy with it, I will confirm your order.
  • Once everyone is happy at this end, I will make the order. I will pay with my own money, I will only ask for your cash once the goods have arrived and there are no more added surprise costs (thanks to Customs and Revenue!!).
  • So, when the goods arrive, I will send you an invoice, to be paid by bank transfer (BACS). In extremis, I will do PayPal, but you need to be aware that it will increase the cost of your order. This is because a group buy is a non profit scheme (there is no margin to soak up PayPal charges).
  • Once payment is in, I will dispatch your order, by whatever method you like. For a small order, that will fit in a second class large letter, that can be as low as 85p (covering stamp, envelope and shoe leather).


I don't ask for your money up front, that is because the cost to you may go down/up, depending on exchange rate when the order is submitted.
I will take requests for other small ticket items from Dutchware, Titanium bling, etc. But nothing too big/pricey (I'm not made of money!!)

I'll be able to pick up the parcel on Monday.
Worked out the final costs (with standard second class post), You'll get a PM from me very soon.
If you want first class (or signed for postage), let me know, I'll adjust the price.
