Posted:heya,

guys, do you know any shop in Europe I could get 2,0 mm oval twist chain? Sure it has to be welded for a safe spin. There are many shops offering 2,4 mm ones but they are WAY too heavy for me (no, im not that weak...I just get wrist pain after a spin from the weight) and my wife as well. We have tried 2,0 mm dog chains but they arent welded and I noticed thet the eyes get opened after some time... (scary)

We are located in Slovakia (Eastern Europe) and dont want to pay hundreads for shipping from USA etc.

Also...the chain MUST be good for orbitals...thats why we sent back the 2,0 mm chains we got here on Hop some time ago

thanks so much


Stan and Jane

Posted:I'm not sure how the hipping is from FireMecca, but their 2mm chain is decent for orbitals. It does take a bit of technique to do it though. Still much better than HoP's old 2mm chain

The only luck is bad luck.

Posted:I know the chain from Salza is extremely good, though it isn't oval twist. It's the best for orbitals and the lightest I've used.

Posted:Ive had that/simillar kind of chain but its not what im looking for. It also hurts when doing spirals.
It must be oval twist...

Im willing to pay somebody through the paypal in advance if you can get the chain for me and send it to my address...promise!

Posted:I know a lot of people that use dog chain, but it's short and always much thicker than 2mm.

Posted:Ive used dog chains but none of them is welded. with 2,4 mm its not an issue cos its strong...2,0 chain is light but not strong enough. I now have one on my Fire Poi but the eyes are getting open while spinning and i wouldnt like to set sth or sb on fire...
