    Most simple knots can be tied in slipped version.
    Usually the last move or two are tied with a bight so that the cord is doubled. Then all you gotta do is yell Geronimo and pull the ripcord.

    I just got some of this stuff. I love it! Similar to my 1.75 lash-it but black (more of a very dark gray).

    I emailed Lawson asking about any differences. I was curious, but don't really expect an answer to that honestly.

    Thanks for the update, I hadn't know he released it in colors yet. Now I'm just going to have to color code my guylines . Lawson's very good about answering emails and proud of his products. You might get more than you asked for.

    I don't know about the technical aspects of cordage but I do like this stuff better than my zing-it. I just seem to have less fiddling when tying the few knots I know and it works nicely with fleas.

    Since you mentioned it...Lawson did give me some good info as usual. I feel wrong cutting and pasting directly from an email, privacy and whatnot, but here are the major points:

    - Tighter braid than zing-it
    - Much rounder, more knot friendly, more hardware friendly, less slippery, and less likely to tangle
    - Dope dyed yarn, so color is permanent. Zing-it is white material with color urethane painted on. (I can confirm as all my yellow zing-it is now whiteish-yellow)
    - Statline was designed to be a knotting line for outdoorsy related uses. Zing-it was designed as a splicing throw line for arborists

    Add to that it can be cut and melted and done, instead of needing to bury the ends, which makes removal of hardware easier too.

    Yes that too. Zing-it fuses pretty easy, but I think this stuff worked a little better (gave me more time to pinch it before cooling down).

    Yes, the color stays nicely. I mean, it's rope, so it's going to get dirty and whatever, but the color stays. My necklace had lasted being worn every day all summer with sun block and swimming and whatever and is still orange! And no, I don't have massive dandruff issues, I am a furniture maker! That would be my normal sprinkling of man glitter.
