Hammock suspension aside, using 500# or 100lb line seems like it must be overkill for the tarp ridge line and tie outs. Surely it is much more strength than needed.The cords listed here so far are very strong, and require a special order to obtain with $15 shipping.
Is the main idea to use a Dyneema line that isn't too stretchy? Any suggestions for line that's easy to find?
What would be the lower end strength requirements for a tarp ridge line, and tie outs? Is 40lb twisted masons line good enough? Or is it too stretchy for the ridge line?
I've also found some 2mm line at a local store rated around 100lbs : here
but it's likely similar to paracord.
Shug mentions here
that paracord is ok but a bit too absorbent and heavy.
Weegie says here
it's too stretchy.
