I tried using grosgain for my tarp lines. It was strong enough, and I liked the solid feel of it, but I origionally wanted to use triglide buckles to adjust the lines---only problem is, its really hard to find buckles that work with grosgain without slipping! So, I ended up going with cord and line loks instead
