U.K. Supplier of SIG control line wire please?

Where can I buy SIG control lines on the spool in the UK? All the old suppliers seem to have disappeared..

Have searched the Internet to no avail..... All my searches end up back on this thread

Thanks
David

I have been getting mine from this guy. http://www.mbsmodelsupply.com/Ordering/Order.php 1,000 ft rolls. I got the .015" and .018, but it looks like he has .012 now. He is about the only guy I know of that has all the solid peed class lines too. The are not Sig, and don't have separate reels unless you get the solids. Ya, I know it is a different country for me too. He is a pretty good guy, he goes to the US nationals with his wares.

I don't know about Sig but you could try PAW for their Staystrate lines which are the same as the old Keil Kraft Laystrate.

Been flying SIG and predecessor Sullivan from 1990 up to 2004.
Went back to Laystrate and subsequently Staystrate.
Less springy, less drag hence less bow.
More precise control, a 'solid' feel.
If I fly on stainless 7 strand wire nowadays it feels 'sluggish'.
Never again.

Thanks for the link, I had forgotten about Pegasus models, they have a great range of products for the modeller in stock.. I have saved them to my bookmarks.
And
Yes I am on the mend after my accident, started a phased return to work in November, I am getting there slowly... It will be a while before I can ride a motorcycle again though... Much to my families relief
Cheers
David
