I put up my first tarp this afternoon, using a continuous 7/64 Amsteel Blue ridgeline. Being a noob, I wasn't 100% sure of what type of line to use for the prusik knot. I ended up trying #18 twisted mason line and have noticed a little bit of give with added tension to the tarp.
Is there any functional difference between twisted and braided mason line?
If so, which is better?
Or...are there line materials out there that are better than the mason line?
If not, will an extra loop on the Prusik make up for any sliding of the knot along the ridgeline?
Thanks for any advice on this.
