I picked up this catfish line at wally today to use on my tarp. ~$2 for 260 ft. I didn't notice until I was all the way home that right on front (The part starting with "WARNING..." Lol! ) it says this:
Tensile strength is approximate to (-10%). Do not use in situations where personal safety could be endangered. Never use this product to secure large flat surfaces or objects that could "airplane." Misuse could result in serious injury or death.
Wow. Didn't catch that one! I think "large flat surfaces" pretty much describes a tarp, but I don't understand the verbal use of the word "airplane."
What do you all think before I open this package up? I feel this is just lawyer talk, but I am asking to be sure. This line has a tensile strength of 113 lbs., and is made of "one or more of nylon, polypro, or polyester."
Another bit of info I should include is that there is some there that is similar in that it is called twine, but has a higher breaking strength. (Around 300 if I remember right.) So, if this isn't horrible to use, I may get some of that anyway...
