The wonder thread called Zing-it is a wonder product. Sure it's slick, and yes it is not a weight bearing line (I suspect it would hold me in a pinch but would never hang my hammock off it) but I love the uses I am finding for it.
It is an excellent ridgeline material, strong, light, bright, repels water, fits Tarp Flyz perfectly.
For many of the same reasons it works well for ridgelines it works well as guyline. In making Self-Tensioning lines it is great because it threads the exercise tubing more easily. It also fits the mini line-locs (sold here at the HF Store).
Survival Bracelet (Zipper Pull)
I found some links at youtube for making survival bracelets out of paracord. I made some out of Zing-it and they are great. Narrower, but I probably have 6' of Zing-it in my bracelet and another 10 on my 2 zipper pulls.
I believe it is the tree planters that made this stuff so popular for their throwlines. Instead of purchasing a $50 throwbag and line combo for my bearbag, I just use 30 feet of Zing-it (store it in a 4 oz Trek Bottle and pull half out then use the line in the bottle as your weight). Trek Bottles are $1.50 at AHE http://arrowheadequipment.webs.com/a...s/show/1134925 . And 50' of Zing-it you can get from Dutch for $11 at http://www.outdoortrailgear.com/trai...hware-zing-it/
