Reaching the last leg of these two DIY projects, and coming to the the last part - strings, ropes, etc. I need a little direction as to what to use as tie downs and ridgeline for the hammock, and then what to use on my el cheapo Guide Gear 12'x12.

I am using paracord for the time being... I have looked at Lash-it and Samson products. But is this over kill, or a necessity? If my weight gets to 1,000 lb strength line, I think I have bigger problems but seriously, I am not here to cut corners... so if that it the correct path, I will go there.
