    I have part of a roll that has been floating around the shop for 2 years. Anyone that wants 10-20 feet to test send me a buck for a couple stamps.

    I almost bought a roll of the fling it yesterday... Glad i decided not to.

    Is there any difference between zing it and lash it besides color?
    Look to this day: For it is life, the very life of life. In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of your existence. The bliss of growth, the glory of action, the splendour of achievement are but experiences of time.

    For yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow is only a vision; And today well-lived, makes yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well therefore to this day; Such is the salutation to the ever-new dawn!

    I'm considering buying a spool of zing-it.... I would be willing to trade half for half of a spool of lash-it...

    No difference, just color.

    You haven't tried splicing it yet, have you?

    My point being, despite your first inspections, fling-it is not the same as zing/lash-it (as has been repeatedly reported) and is not readily splice-able. I would not want others that would like to splice, be mislead by your report.
