Stronger than Kevlar? (#2)

    (This is part two of my "Stronger than Kevlar?" queries :) )

    Is Nevlar* stronger than Kevlar?
    (*A polymer I designed)

    I dont think it will be stronger, the orientations of the bonds (and what i would expect bond orbital overlaps to be like by mental picture) doesnt look nearly as optimum as in kevlar. But what do i know....:uhh:

    Well, the bonds in my third image aren't exactly "drawn to scale" (so a mental picture might look different...). If you can suggest any molecular modeling freeware, I can post a much better image--

    Why so?
