    For a continuous ridgeline, 30 feet should be enough for tarp set up unless youi have really large trees in your area.

    I am thinking of buying 50ft of zing it, 3 dutch hooks, and a dutch flyz. The other 20 ft I am going to use to make a structural ridgeline and other parts of the continuous ridge line.

    I'm beginning to think you might be confused, and should get unconfused before making a purchase. I understand 30 ft of Zing-It, one dutch hook, and one Dutch Tarp Flyz to make a continuous ridgeline for your tarp (though I like 35 ft). What are the other two Dutch hooks for? What other parts are there to a continuous ridgeline?

    As for a hammock ridgeline, you might be better off with an adjustable ridgeline rather than a permanent structural ridgeline, so you can have adjustability. Your ENO Singlenest is 112" long. If you accept the de facto standard that your hammock ridgeline should be around 83% of your hammock length, then you're looking at making a Zing-It whoopie sling of 93 inches, or 7.75 ft. That means you'll need roughly 16 ft. of Zing-It.

    Also, at the rates you'll be charged for 50 ft. of Zing-It, I'd just buy a 180 ft. roll for approximately $24, plus shipping. You can get it at http://wesspur.com and other places for around the same price. You can use the extra cord for soft shackle prusiks (to attach tarp to continuous ridgeline), guy lines, etc.

    In my opinion, that's just a waste of cordage and Dutch Hooks. All you need is one Dutch hook on one end, and a Dutch Tarp Flyz on the other.

    I can't see that you gain anything by having a prusik with Dutch hook attached to a loop on the D ring. A simple soft shackle prusik to attach tarp to ridgeline serves the same purpose, unless your intent is to maximize the amount of cordage, Dutch bling, and weight of your ridgeline. The video poster also seemed to have problems with the locked brummel for the Dutch hook, so maybe all the other stuff is just to avoid having to do any further splicing (i.e., a soft shackle prusik). Or maybe he just likes knots rather than splices.

    Splicing 1.75 mm Zing-It ain't easy, but you could simply tie a prusik to your tarp rather than going to all the effort the video poster did.

    Here's a direct link to the Wesspur site at http://www.wesspur.com/Throw-line/zi...hrow-line.html

    Redden Marine also sells it, and there's a 5% discount if you use the code hammockforum. Here's the thread on that discount:

    And here's the direct link to Zing-It on Redden Marine:

    http://www.reddenmarine.com/samson-rope-zing-it.html

    I think that Wesspur comes out cheaper, as I recall. Redden Marine, even with the discount, charges an arm and a leg for shipping.

    I also found a deal on Jacks R. Better.com I can get everything I need for 30 bucks and that includes shipping.(50 ft of zing it, 1 dutch hook, 1 duch flyz). I probably will order 125 ft of zing it because can one have enough zing it I mean look at the uses I can replace the rope I have on my tarp with zing it. and I would not mind having my own rope around.

    I've gone through three rolls of Zing-It in the last year. You can never have enough around.
