    Mule tape vs. Amsteel whoopies. Yes or no?
    Amsteel is lighter. Mule tape is good stuff, but IMHO it is a little thin for tree huggers. . . and poly straps are cheap. . .

    Hey John, I sent you a PM about buying some mule tape. I'd love to have an envelope's worth, thanks!

    Would this catch less on tree bark than paracord? I'm thinking it may be useful for bear bags as well. How much is a medium flat-rate box? I'm having a hard time looking up the rate.
    Thanks!

    PM sent.

    As an assistant scout master, I actually have a meeting tonight with my son's patrol leader committee and will be discussing getting some of the interested scouts into hammocks, guided by PapaSmurf's boy scout hammock kit post.

    Thank you for your efforts towards the cause. (hammocks and scouts.)

    $7 covers paypal, shipping, and a few pennies to cover tape, ink, etc.
    120' - 150' unless you need more... (I have a finite supply)

    A Medium sized box, I'd rather save for Scout Troops.
    500' + $12.00 covers shipping and paypal fees. (ok, I profit $0.06).
    Please let me know how much you will really use, as I do have a finite supply.

    I have a few PM's, so let me get those shipped out.

    For day hikes I use the mule tape marked 1800 lbs. as tree straps for my ENO hammock. It is slick but it holds a bowline knot just fine. I use a bowline knot to put a loop in one end of the mule tape. Loop it thru itself at the tree end. Then I use either a marlin spike hitch on the hammock end or a "line lock" using a descending ring and carabiner.

    I use stronger stuff for overnite but for an hour hammock use on a day hike it works great.
