    Help finding black tarp lines...

    Does ZingIt come in black? I've got the Dutch hooks and figure 9 hooks, so I need that small 1.75mm width. Something to stand up to any type of weather. I want to get all black lines for my Superfly, but everything I find is brightly colored or reflective. Anyone know where I could find something like this?

    Try googling black Dacron fishing line. I have some in 60 pound braid, I use it for tarps. Never snapped...yet.
    An emergency of my own making...is still an emergency.

    AHE sells black 1/16 (1.58mm) poly guyline by the foot. I think it's rated to 100lbs.
    I know it's not zing-it, but thought I'd post anyway, just in case you might be interested. :-)
    Cheers,

    Tether Cord

    This is some braided nylon line that is plenty strong.

    Kite supplies

    On line kit supples or bricks and mortar hobby shops in some parts of the country. They call it Dacron, which is a trademarked polyester. Many weights available, up to 200lb test. As inexpensive as $.04 for big stuff in quantity. White or black, with a small price premium from some vendors for black.

    One problem with some fishing line is tangle. Arborists commenting on throw line comment on differences among them in that property, too.

    I finally found something that would work. Kevlar cord seems to be perfect. I also just stumbled upon Zpacks line. Anyone else use kevlar cord? From what I've read about it, it would be perfect for tarp lines.
