    It's not a hollow core, I'm not saying it couldn't be done but the core is typically where the strength comes from on jacketed rope. So it may not work out the way you want it.

    Its held every knot I've put in it. It would work well as a ridge line or more than just tarp tie outs. Dutch fly's fit on it.

    I searched for uses as guy lines and couldnt find anything. How is it being attached to D rings and stakes?

    Try tying a bowline to the d-ring. I use mini line-locs for the stake end but you could use a taut line hitch as well

    You tie knots. Or one could stitch and whip. Or use hardware or nylon fittings, knotbones, or Figure 9's.

    Thanks Demostix, I thought I was missing something. I think I will go with Zing-it with prussiks for guy lines. I like the idea of being able to make tarp adjustments while staying under the tarp on those rainy days.
