    Reflective Line Source

    I am wanting to make some zipper pulls for my WBBB and need just about 2 feet of cord. So far I can only find suppliers that are selling 50 foot lengths. Anyone know a retailer that might sell it by the foot?

    I have bought some cord from REI in the past but did not remember them having reflective cord. Went to there website also and did not see any there.

    I've got a bit of extra Kelty Triptease. If it is only 2' you need, PM me your address. REI (and other vendors sell it in 50' lots). Mountainfitter (ie: Lawson Outdoor Equipment) also sells reflective cord.

    Thanks for the heads up on this also. I know I will be needing more cordage in the future.

    I love TripTease for my tarp ridgeline but it's stiffer than I like for the guy lines. While a little heavier, I'm very happy with my NiteIze tent kit. It came with four plastic Figure 9s and four 8' reflective lines. One thing I like is that it's 2.5mm line which is easier to see imho. Of course the TripTease still shows up nicely or I'd be clotheslining myself all the time.
