    Hey Paul - how anti-tangle is that 1.75mm stuff you sell - if used for tarp guy-lines? Braided Mason's line is miserable to work with, it tangles so easily, I'm curious about the differences. Is this stuff more stiff?

    yo sclittlefield--I know both these cords. I use a lot of the 1.8 Lash-It. Compared to mason's line it is considerably more stiff and less prone to tangle, but it will still tangle.

    I dunno, for tarp tie-outs I'll typically do the figure-8 wrap thing around my fingers to bundle the cord up, and that pretty much takes care of tangles with whatever cord I'm using. For that application and that way of tidying up the cord it probably doesn't make a difference. But for a ridgeline, say, where some considerable force might find its way....I like the Lash-It.
