    Marshalltown Braided/Bonded Mason Line

    Has anybody used this particular brand of mason line for tarp guylines?
    http://www.amazon.com/MARSHALLTOWN-P.../dp/B001RJ70F6

    I have been testing it on and off for a year or so and I am quite happy with it. It is super light and it does not have many of the drawbacks of all the other mason line that I have tried.

    It stretches less, but it is nylon so it does stretch a little
    It is really hard to tangle, which is what really turned me off to other mason line.
    It has a slight "memory" and is not limp like other mason lines
    Break strength rated by manufacturer is 150 lbs
    It works well with dutch hooks and linelocs
    don't know actual weight but a 4 ft line weighs less than 2 grams

    It is kind of pricy for mason line at $11-$18 and it seems to fluctuate wildly on amazon from week to week
    It also comes in bright colors so you will be less likely to trip over it.

    I also use it for suspension for my poncho tarp.

    So yeah...let me know if anybody has tried it/liked it/hated it/etc
    I have used 400ft from this spool (mostly for guylines and I have yet to have any problems, so I would really like to hear your experience
