    Zing It or Lash It is a pretty popular choice.

    If you're not used to splicing you might go with 2.2 instead of 1.75. It's significantly easier to work with imho.

    If you prefer gray instead of yellow:

    I use the gray 1.75mm...got a 180'...works great w/ Dutchware! Also, if you order from Redden Marine be sure to use the forum discount code (hammockforums)! Their shipping is also pretty fast...3 days from WA to SC.
