What would be a suggested size rope to use on the Force 12 C31? Is 1/8"
enough or do you need larger diameter? Will a solid nylon cord work (less
wicking) to dampen or does it have to be real flimsy like a woven rope? How
far up the elements do you need to put the rope to be effective? Where can
you get small end caps that would fit on the ends of the Force 12 elements?

The 10m director didn't last a year at WP2Z on the C3E due to wind. The tip
broke off where it goes into the next larger piece. You can watch the
elements vibrate in the wind.
