The AR (Aspect Ratio) may be too small... 20 1/8" works, but 18g 1/8" MIGHT be too tight...

20 ga. 1/8" and 18 gauge 14" would work. I personally like 22 gauge 3/32" and 20 gauge 5/32".

I use a straight up 17 guage weave for dragonscale. I use 3/8 large ring and 1/4 small ring, and it works great! I dunno about the 18 guage 1/8 tho'....

I use the same ring sizes but with 16g, mabey that's why it is'nt very flexable.

18 ga 1/8th will make a good jens pind but definitely not dragon scale. for good e 4-1 try 18 ga 5/32. I'm making a glove out of that right now and it's about as dense as you can get without it becoming too stiff; good for byzantine too.


Here comes the water......
