    Ditto Opie. For those of us (like me) who are unsure how to make whoopie slings and other things like adjustable ridgelines, he has a lot of selection. Rather than figure it all out, it was nice to be able to order from him earlier today and know it will be done right.

    RE: Home Depot Mason Line...

    I was using the pink mason line (Leftovers from a Halloween project) but I HATED the stuff... Then I figured out I had the TWISTED line, which isn't very durable.

    Spend a few dollars more and get the braided mason line... The Twisted stuff is labelled Twisted, the braided stuff just says Mason Line. The difference is visible.

    I agree, The braided mason line is a lot stonger and will not pull apart.

    Definitely agree that the braided mason is much better than twisted.

    My only complaint about mason line is it's so small that it can be hard to undo knots and tangles. But since it's so cheap you can cut away the problem and install a new line.

    i've found that to be more due to it being so limp. zing-it is about the same size and infinately more easy to deal with because it's much stiffer

    So true. I also made the switch from mason line to zing-it. Talk about a price jump!

    I second the Speer No-Tangle. I use it on all my tarps. It's reasonably priced, practically bombproof and holds knots well. Can't go wrong using this stuff, IMO.

    It'll be coming with the new brown SWT I ordered last night.
