    best price for zing it?

    I think for the value, I'll go with Zing-it 2.2. It has strength and I can splice it easier than 1.75 (any opinions on that?). Where is the best price and place to buy it?

    This site is actually a few dollars less. The link takes you to the 2.2 zing-it but they have 1.75 if you prefer.

    I'd go with the heavier size, because spectra/dyneema loses so much strength from frictional heating. the 2.2 give you a better option all around.

    Also personally I lift and tie off a block (sailing pulley) for hanging bear bags. The damage lifting a few oz of pulley and light line is none to the tree. And then the heavy bag is much easier to lift and does no damage to the tree.

    I have seen way too many trees with all the reasonable branches killed from poor bear bagging practices I'll carry a little more weight to help the trees and make my life easier.

    Of course overnight or weekend food bags are much lighter than two week trip bags...

    Just make sure to err on the sid eof saving the trees as not doing so will eventually get us banned from parks or other controlled use areas.
