    I appologize that my first post on this forum is an obnoxious and crude attempt at humor, but I couldn't resist.

    We'd all wonder about you if you weren't crude! Welcome!!

    That's a good one.

    I'm going to go wild and try to pull some through some 550 sheath for purely vain, aesthetic reasons. Maybe I'll give that a go on the ridgeline first and see how it works out.
    Patrick, I stole your idea and put the 550 sheath around some amsteel 7/64 cord. Tried to pull through and ended up doing it the slow way, inch by inch. Looks and works great. Thanks for the idea

    I wonder how many people will tell me I should not use that paracord to hang my hammock

    Not to be rude and bring this back on topic or anything <grin> but my biners (the ones mentioned a few pages ago) just came in today. I have a hard time believing that these things are rated at 1100 lbs (500kg), but I am going to give it a whirl next weekend in the Adirondacks. I'll take along my regular biners just in case I am lying on my butt in the snow after one of these things snaps.

    Yes, I'll be using these to hang from (that is the intent of the seller, I gather). They are about 1/5 the weight of the ones I am using right now. These things are the same size as the 150-pounders you can get at Lowes for $.99, and they don't weigh much more. I'll be using the 150 pounder for my ridgeline...

    I might just end up liking this lightweight stuff. Maybe ultralight isn't so far off after all...

    What were these 'wonder biners' again? I looked back but I couldn't find a mention in your previous posts...

    What ever works go for it. I ended up on my butt on the ground last time I used para cord as a load bearing line.

    What is your setup and how are you using it? I am interested to see how it is working for you when it would not for me.
