    no-tangle guy line options

    I'm curious as to what my options are for no-tangle guy line options. I was originally going to get what was formerly known as the "Speer No-Tangle", but I was a but dismayed at the cost of shipping from the new vendor.

    Are there any other options out there?

    thanks!

    I have, so far, bought and used about 300ft of this stuff for experimentation and mistakes . I don't know what no-tangle is, but this is slick and if knots form, they are easily undone. It might also be overkill for your needs so check out the throw line page. Great company and super fast shipping. Highly recommended!

    no-tangle is cord designed not to tangle or knot. I'm looking for options in the "does not tangle" realm.

    There are ropes designed to be no tangle. I don't know how it works, I suspect some type of magic or the involvement of bending space and time to make it happen.

    I really like it ... of course it will tangle but not much. It is sorta stiff. I use it on all my tarps. The "vendors" website shipping is goofed up .... I have ordered twice and twice he re-inbursed most of my shipping.
    Maybe e-mail him and double check.

    millarky, I don't know the specifics, but I know that no-tangle is far stiffer than most rope/cord. I first had experience with it on the ENO rain flys, and I have to say, it was *NICE*. It's great being able to just ignore the cord all together when shoving your rain fly away.

    Shug, thanks for the info and suggestion. I'd really like to buy from the guys local on the board, but that shipping cost...yeow!

    Unfortunatly that's one of the few things that's nice about the ENO rain fly!
