Would those be dynamic strawberry laces or static ones?

There is an important point to be made here: make sure you only use LIQUORICE maillons with strawberry laces. Other flavours of maillon are known to react with laces, which will significantly reduce the load-bearing capability of the rig. This is thought to be due to an iron brew exchange mechanism.

Good idea, saves time de-rigging if you eat the rope as you go.
