    Speer No Tangle equivalent?

    I don't see the Speer No Tangle on the web page anymore...besides, I want to buy a big spool. Which line is the equivalent to the no tangle? (e.g. Lash-It, Zing-It, Dynaglide, etc).

    I have some grey Lash-it, but it's the 2.2 I use for (stealth) tarp ridgelines. I'm looking for something (non-stealth) for guy lines.

    I believe No-Tangle is no longer in production.

    I'd suggest some braided mason line in a bright color. Or a 1.75mm zing it style. Both are reasonably priced.

    No tangle is available here-

    The closest equivalent I have found is here-

    Sorry, haven't found a bulk supplier for the smaller stuff.

    I've been eyeing this for a tarp ridgeline
    http://www.amazon.com/Edelweiss-Edel...ef=pd_sbs_sg_1
    the 2 mm x 60 m looks the most appealing, to me at least.
    of course it isn't reflective but..ehh

    Yeah, I didn't realize it was at TTTrailgear.com

    I think I might buy some if the alternatives don't do something for me. I already have a spool of silver/grey Lash-It 2.2 for my stealth rigs. I want something bright for my "please don't trip over me rigs"

    The single braid Dyneema that Warbonnet sells is good stuff, and very tangle resistant. I actually made a thread about it after I cut my guy-lines.

    If there's two ways to take my comments, assume it's the lighter and funnier of the two.

    I didn't realize he had some of this...I just put in an order for a quilt...I should get a hold of him and ask if he can add some to my order.

    Some of the smaller single braid Dyneema lines are pretty good with tangle resistance but IMHO not as good as Dacron covered Spectra lines, like Speer no tangle, which is stiffer. Also the Dacron cover makes it better for holding knots.
