    Fling-it

    I love the bright yellow of Zing-it. Lash-it, it's grey twin, would work if I were a stealthy hanger. With my bright orange hammock, UQ, and Dutchware I'm anything but stealthy though. To my surprise and joy I've found FLING-IT. Orange 1.75mm dynema! Yes!!!

    It may not be too much orange, but it is too much information.

    That is a great price for 180 feet. Orange is the new yellow.

    Unfortunately fling it is nothing like lash it and zing it. the coating is more like the line was dipped rather than added to the strands before weaving so it is thick and not very supple. It really is not a very good line for our uses. Far to plasticy.

    I have part of a roll that has been floating around the shop for 2 years. Anyone that wants 10-20 feet to test send me a buck for a couple stamps.

    +10...It has a square cross section and a prusik knot won't hold on it until you get it rounded out and it is not readily splice-able like zing it. I made the mistake of buying a roll and have not found a use for it.
