    Color selection of 1.75/2mm dyneema

    Hey guys. I've seen several videos showing people using a lime green and pink 1.75 or 2mm dyneema for tarp guy lines and such and am just curious on where these colors can be found. All I'm seeing is zing it and lash it (yellow and grey). Is the camera playing tricks on my eyes and that green is really yellow? Wait, explain the pink! I would like to get some funky colors like my 7/64. Any help with vendor info would be appreciated

    I know dynaglide is available in bright orange and lime green... The pink I have no clue...
    Live, Laugh, Love, if that doesn't work. Load, Aim and Fire, repeat as necessary...

    Thanks for the info. I'm still new to all this for the most part and am trying to learn all the names/sizes of these ropes T.T That green is what I had my heart set on, but if anyone knows of other colors please let me know. Also trusted vendor info with good prices on this stuff would be greatly appreciated.

    That "pink" you're seeing is probably the bright orange dynaglide. It also comes in neon green. New England Ropes makes a product equivalent to dynaglide without the bright colors.

    I think there's a red version of Lash It/Zing It...not sure where it can be bought though....is it the stuff called "Fling It?"

    As a note, I get all my line (amsteel, zing-it, green dyneema, etc.) from Dutch at DutchWareGear.com.

    The thing about fling-it, is it has a core so you have to use knots. I bought some a while back from Bailey. They had miss marked it online and they ended up filling one order, MINE. I got I believe 180' of 2.2 mm for 12.00 I think. I use it for bear bag lines and to make triangles for UQ. It is very slick and it is a reddish orange.
