    I believe the adjustable grip hitch shown here (http://www.Layhands.com/Knots/Knots_Hitches.htm#AdjustableGripHitch) is generally considered superior to the taught line hitch. Use ~3-4 wraps for a...

    Tarp Ridgeline: Over or Under

    Many of the pictures I've seen here have the tarp ridgeline over the tarp. Does this have any particular advantage over having it under the tarp? Would having it under tend to cause tarp wear?

    I just got some 7/64 green and some 1/8 gray amsteel from the group buy. I'd be willing to trade some of that for a tarp also.


    Another random thought. I'm pretty good at sharpening knives,...

    So, I e-mailed Bargain Outfitters asking if they would get any more in stock and they said:


    Apparently I missed this. Is anyone interested in selling me one of their extras?

    WTB: Guide Gear 12X12 Tarp (Can trade for with amsteel)

    Apparently I just missed them before they went out of stock. Anyone decide they ordered one too many spares, and would be willing to sell to me?

    I'm still working out rope options as well. In terms of slipping, has anyone tried the klemheist knot instead of the prusik? I perfer this knot and have had good results with it.

    ChrisH, how is your fixed eye attached to the main suspension?

    Isn't the issue derating the line due to increased line compression from the knot, not slipping?

    Ah okay. So, a decent plan would be to use amsteel for premade rigging, but use polyester line if I wanted to bring a few coils for general camp use?

    This is understood. I'd like to know what about amsteel is particularly unsuited for knots.



    Ah okay. So, the slipperiness of the line allows the knots to tighten more, and thus pinch the...

    Wow, these seemed to go fast. I could go for a tarp like that at that price. Looks like a upgrade to my home depot tarp.

    Any idea how often they come back in stock?

    Amsteel and knots, what's the deal?

    Splicing is obviously better than knots. This works well for when you make up some permanent rigging for your hammock or other things, but there are many times that you want/need to just tie a knot....
