I see that most people use the AirCore Plus for the cord on their ring buckle set-ups. Great cord, but on the pricey side for us poor folks. Granted, I'll be collecting Social Security (pipe dream!) by the time I use a full spool, but still.
What are the problems, or potential problems, with using something like this: http://west.loadup.com/military/surplus/10106.html ?
It's nylon so it probably won't hold up to the sun, but this section of my hammock is covered by a tarp anyhow. Plus you can buy the same length of cord for $4! It's rated to 1000 lbs and super cheap. Looking for someone to shoot some holes in my cheap ways.
The site said it is military surplus, so I'm wondering if any of you soldiers/sailors have ever seen or used it?
