    Which cord(s) work best with lineloc 3's?

    The title pretty much says it all.

    I was planning to use Lash-It 2.2mm, but a search found this thread that suggests that it may not be the best choice. Some posts say that triptease and glowire work well, but I'd like something a little more stealthy if possible. Suggestions?

    HMG's cuben tarps use lineloc 3's and supplies spectra line which holds very well.
    I found lash-it way to slippery even with a half hitch.

    The cord that Mountainfitter (Lawson Equipment) has seems to work well.

    Thanks for the replies! I never thought buying rope would be such an endeavor...

    Thanks OutandBack. That is one I haven't seen before. Any idea which size they use? I'm assuming the 2.8 mm.

    I have a couple of those lying around somewhere - never used them. Maybe I'll mess with them a bit (if I can find them). I like the 3's because they are attached at the tarp tie-out and always in the same place.

    I assume you are referring to Glowire. Brightly colored for my taste, but I am considering it. If this came in a more muted color I would likely order it now. Liking the price though.
