    1.75 or 2.2.

    I can get Red in 1.75, and then there is grey and yellow in both sizes.
    Opie, I'm in for 100ft of grey and 100ft of red, whatever size they come in or get is fine.

    Since, I'm a noobie and just don't want to loose out on materials for making my gear. Can someone explain the benefits of the diameters. I have no idea what lash it is or very much what zing it is. My understanding is that the zing it is being used by DIY'ers for tie-outs on the edges of the tarps. The dyneema and amsteel being used for holding the hammock to the tree huggers. And Barney is used to destroy the sanity of parents, teenagers, and lawn trolls.

    The bigger diameter is somewhat stronger.
    The smaller diameter is best for making prussiks for on the larger diameter line (they hold better than prussiks of the same diam.)
    Lash-it is just gray Zing-it, as far as I know.

    Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, please.

    Trout... Acer is correct.

    The Zing It and Lash It are made from the same fiber, Dyneema. The difference between the two diameters is strength and thats it. (other than the 2.2 is physically bigger)
    I am not a gram weenie. , But Im starting to see the merits!!!

    Opie,
    Thanks for this. I was thinking of this exact same thing last. I'd be interested in 50' grey 2.2 and 100' red 1.75. But I'm flexible on color. Who's going to see them besides the birds and squirrels?
