    It's the best for the weight. He sells it in 100ft lengths.

    Brandon sells some yellow dyneema which is pretty good too. I don't have the Speer stuff, so I can't really tell you how it compares, but I've been happy with it.

    I use 1.8mm spyderline I get from Westmarine. approx $20 for 100'. Has good breaking strength too, so it can be used for other things.

    yes! that is what I got- on the theory that the "guys" would not run off with my gear if it all had pink lines tied to it! (had to really search to find the braided cord- mostly the twisted stuff was on the shelf.)


    got some pink 4mm cord for the ridgeline too!

    I just noticed that Paul from Arrowhead is offering guy line kits. One already setup for the ridge line and 50ft sections for the actual guy lines. The pictures he has on the site, make it look a lot like the Mason line, however, I am sure the mason line won't hold 400lbs as he says his line will.

    I have mason lines now. They tangle up something horrible, and aren't very strong AT ALL!!
