    Replacing HH stock line

    I posted this as a reply to a thread in the supports thread, but if you're not using the "new posts" button, you probably don't check the "hammock supports" thread. So here it is:

    I'm looking for a line that will replace a stock HH line. I bought my hammock at an REI attic sale and there's a spot on the cord where the covering is split and it's clearly starting to become unsafe. I like the line that comes stock on the HH, but I'm not sure where I can get some more. Anyone know?

    Also, I need to know of something that I could use for this, from Just Jeff's. The line would be for attaching the rings to the hammock line, so I need something about the same size as the hammock lines, or a bit smaller. I saw that Jeff used AirCore Plus, but I have only seen that at backpackinglight.com and I don't want to shell out $40 for something that I only need 10 feet of and can only buy in 50 ft lengths.

    thoughts?

    HH use different types of line for different models of their hammocks. What model of HH do you have?

    I contacted HH on getting some of that stiff, black Spectra that they use on the ULBA. After corresponding for a week, I finally got them to offer to sell me some...at .75 per foot. Ouch.

    OH NO! That's exactly the stuff that I wanted!!! Maybe I'll see if they can give me some or sell it to me at cost since there is a (cough cough) product malfunction...
    ...granted I bought it "used" (although it was only setup once) and not from them, but maybe tom hennessy will help me out?


    Where else can I buy spectra line?

    My understanding is that Dyneema and Spectra are more or less the same. Just different brand names for ultra high molecular weight fiber. Any place that sells rope/chord for boating. Check out www.apsltd.com 3mm at $0.50/ft.
