    Finding Zing-It local in MN?

    Anyone know of a local store that carries Zing-It? Prefer west-metro.

    Look for arborist supply/tree care companies.

    If you don't find it locally, I've ordered mine from Knot and Rope. Lower price than most and they ship fast. I placed an order yesterday and received it today (Ohio to Indiana).

    Don't get the Fling-It (can't be spliced easily).

    I have used treestuff.com. They have been really good to deal with.

    You can get the amsteel at West Marine located on Ridgedale drive near 394 and 494...1/8 amsteel is around .57 a foot and 7/64 was .23 a foot...

    I hit up West Marine today, oh what a mess. First guy tells me they don't carry it and are not stocking Amsteel anymore. I find the last of a 1/8" roll on the floor, wait 20 minutes to see if I can get a deal only to find out they plan to keep carrying it (thus no deal). I already have 3 hammocks with 1/8" whoopies and didn't need any more.

    I am just going to order online. I will limp by for this trip.
