    where do you buy your cordage?

    i have a bunch of paracord but after i get the ammount i like/need, it gets a little heavy.

    I prefer a good 2mm cord for guy lines on my tarp. There's a couple of local outdoor stores here that carry it on the shelf by the roll. It's been awhile since I was in MI. so I don't recall a local store up there.

    If you are looking for tarp guy lines, you can go here: http://whoopieslings.com/No_Knot_Tarp_Guylines.html or here: http://arrowheadequipment.webs.com/apps/webstore/ , or here: http://www.jacksrbetter.com/Products.htm , or you can go to a hardware store and get braided masons line, make sure not to get the twisted kind! These are just a couple places to go, there a a bunch more vendors that will have what you need. You can look on the vendor listing here on the forum for more!

    Speer No-Tangle Guy Lines and AHE 1.75mm Utility Line in grey for the ridgeline for me. I like it lite, and to be able to tie knots without slippage
    Those who expect disappointment are never disappointed.

    All of the above links are good choices for online ordering. In my travels I often find myself in a good outfitter store and purchase there as well.

    If you order from Reddenmarine, currently you can get a discount with the discount code of " hammockforum". - 5% . I just ordered some stuff today so I can verify it is still in effect.

    Additionally for general cordage supplies I also use APSLtd , Annapolis Performance Sailing.
