hi E1, well i was fishing the other day and as i was putting a fish onto my $0.97 fish stringer. i thought that that this would make a great guyline for my tarp. its 6 foot long, has a built in "tent peg" on one end, has a steel ring on the other end. trash doesnt stick to it like mason line. its stronger than mason line. it is hollow braid like amsteel. im gonna try it. what do yall think?
