    Check out country brooks designs. They have some 1" nylon that's literally 1/3 the price of every other nylon option. Polyester is a little tougher to come by and you're going to pay for it. ...

    Just a little FYI. They have really limited stock of these so order quick. Apparently they were returns from a dealer in Spain and they won't be getting more from the manufacturer for a few months.

    For my tadpole I've tied off 5 feet of lash-it to each pull out. Then made prussiks out of continuous loops. Loop the prussik over the stake and tension. Super fast, and easy.
