The DF65 is straightforward to build. It will require a good pair of scissors or exacto knife to cut the dyneema sheeting. Another thing that is very helpful is some Cyanacrylate Glue (Crazy Glue) to add to your knots. We really like the Gel CA from Bob Smith. It can be ordered through our site at – BSI116
