    I have used a single length tarp cover. Frankly I did not like it and replaced it fairly quickly. It was on my wife's tarp and I would have changed it out sooner had it been on mine. But she didn't use it that much so it wasn't on my radar.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    I only ever used the skins for my tarp. Never saw the advantage for using on a hammock.

    Brandon has, on more than one occasion, mentioned poly webbing from OWF. 1", camo, 2000#...that would be a very nice addition.

    I think they still have the camo, it is a bit more (like double) what the black runs but I could definitely get some in.

    Paul, it was the 2000# that had my attention. The camo, I can take or leave.

    Dave, that is polyester webbing... Ed Speer and I were looking at some recently at Hot Springs. It frays very easily. Better get a sample first.

    Hmmm, I will have to grab a few yards the next time I wander over that way and do some testing to see how it holds up,

    1: S biners and what sizes? I like the 1's as they are so small,
    2: small 9's
    3: Large 9's
    4: small or large carabiner 9's
    5: Flashflight light up frisbee, I have one some place they are loads of fun
    6: anything else?
    I will have to see what if anything I can work with them but just curious if any body would want some?
    I'm still looking for a use for S biners. I have a couple, bought on impulse because, well, they are cool looking. Unfortunately, they are steel, heavy, and aren't rated for very much weight, at all.

    I do like the small 9's, and found at least one application for small biner 9's.

    Of course, now polyester webbing is the foundation of the UL Angrysparrow Molly Mac Pack!

    Every sample I have seen, except what AT&T uses to pull wires, has had a smooth finish, apparently quite resistant to fraying.
