I guess my first post should be in the Introduce Yourself section but what the heck. Ill post there to . Ive been toying around with hammock camping. Have been for a while. Long story short, Im considering DIY or buying an inexpensive setup like the Hammock Bliss No See Um... and modding it. Im going to need some decent cordage for the suspension mods, i.e., some sort of ridgeline, quick setup via garda hitch and some way of getting the netting off my face. Tarpage and what not. Ive been reading a lot about amsteel and am wondering what it is that maks it the (seemingly) preferred thing to use rather than say....heck i dont know, climbing rope, cheap polyester rope or paracord?
