Sorry so late but I hope you didnt go buy t-18 or any other flat webbing for a 20m line.
The deal is you will be out-growing this very soon. Just get tublar is much cheaper; approx $0.25/ft v's $0.7, $1.00, and $3.00. I'm sure you are still using a primitive system. The extra passes means that you are using more webbing thus paying more. What I did was use tubular until I passed 50m. Of course you will have to scale up to a pulley system prior to this.
I regularly rig a 50M tubular, and wanted to go bigger so now im using 63m T-18.

Also flat webbings are more easily damaged by line lockers so it is suggested that you invest in non ring based lockers adding to the expense.

Get 50m of tubular it will only set you back $40 and will last you until you can collect pulley system gear. Once you gear up and master the 50m line then invest in flat.
