    What line for the "line" part of crl?

    I just received my WBBB and SuperFly not too long ago. I also received a bunch of dutch bling and various line. I have Amsteel, Zing-it, and Lash-it. What do I use for what? I was originally going to use the amsteel for the line and the prusiks, but in reading more about prusiks, I learned that I want a smaller diameter line for that. Can you make continuous loops with Zing-it? I was thinking guy lines would be lash-it.

    I'm ashamed to say that I'm now confused by string.

    Use the Zing-it oir Lash-it for your tarp. Amsteel is overkill for tarp lines. Use it for making whoopie slings or other things for any hammock suspesion related needs.

    Yes you can make continuous loops out of Zing-it or Lash-it. It can be difficult for some people because it the size but its possible.

    Yep - what Bubba said. And you can use Zing-it or Lash-it for the prussiks also - just may need to take an extra wrap to get it to hold.

    'Redoleary' gave me this idea for using a UCR instead of a prussik for tarp adjustment along the ridgeline. Slides easier and still holds good.

    What is a ucr? And what exactly am I looking at. Is the ridgeline just threaded through the other line?

    "Utility Constrictor Rope" There is a 'sticky' in the 'Suspension' section. I think the discussion about UCR's is in part 3 of the GrizzleyAdams primer.

    Yes, the ridgeline is inside the UCR and the UCR works like a chinese finger cuff to grip the ridgeline. The UCR has tension applied to it from one end only, whereas the whoopie has tension applied from both ends of the constrictor section.

    Redoleary/Passinthru,

    That's a great idea. Thanks for sharing it!
