    Speer no tangle

    Where can I get some orange spectra now that Speer doesn't offer it?

    The trade name for that cording is "Yale Pulse 1/16" cordage". The last I heard, they were only manufacturing it by the spool.

    Dynaglide is available in orange, if you're just looking for small diameter cordage. It's spliceable too.

    It's on the website http://www.speerhammocks.com/Products/Supplies.htm near the bottom, below webbing above hook & loop.

    Great stuff.

    i dont want to be banished from the forum for this, but why exactly is it that this guyline is so good?

    does it have a good hand?

    hold knots well?

    is it lightweight?

    any other qualities i may have missed?

    They won't banish you but they will shun you at teh next hang.

    What I really like about it is;
    It is highly visable
    It it ridgid and doesn't tangle easily
    When it does tangle it is easy to get out
    It holds knot well

    can speer's guyline be spliced?
    is it lighter than dynaglide or 1.75 zing it?

    I know 1/16 (speer) is thin, but the zing it splices w/out too much trouble
