    Ridgeline cordage

    Any thoughts on using amsteel 7/64 for a ridgeline? The site says it has a 1400lb limit. Is that a typo?

    Not a typo. It's perfectly acceptable for a ridgeline, or even suspension use.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    Yeah, what he said. That pretty much says it all.
