    My local Walmart has this line priced at $3.96. Everything is higher here.

    FWIW...the stretch in mason's line is utilized in construction to tie it off with a no knot quick release method.

    EDIT: nevermind the below. Apparently its only available in the store and there doesnt appear to be one in your area.

    That sucks. Do you have a blain's farm and fleet in your area? Looks like you can get it there as well or order some online....

    Zing it over the Dacron. I actually prefer the larger diam, 2.2 or something like that for the reason you mentioned, it's easier to handle and knot. I bought a roll of each size and use the little stuff for food hanging / spare line, etc. If I have a specific use, I'll use the larger size.

    Ill probably go the same route whenever I get some Zing it and go with the bigger size. If for no other reason than it would be easier to splice which I have never done.

    Just ordered some cordage from this place- http://www.funwithwind.com/store/Lis...3&idparent=168 ----------dacron kite line----it splices really easy (for mini whoopie slings etc) and its pretty cheap, and best of all, free shipping! I've been really happy with it.

    I've been using this cordage too. It's a great price. They also have a 50' amount of the same cord (but it's camo) they have priced at $3.88 or something like that. I just did the math and I don't really "need" camo It's been working fine for what I'm using it for.

    Well why wouldn't I buy an Un-tempered hammer? I've got enough of a temper meself!

    I had the pink Wally world line on my tarp till I got that Glow line from Larsens. If you want to stealth camp, use the Wally line. You'll be able to find your tarp from a mile away with the glow line. Brilliant White lines pointing up from the ground to the tarp I tell ya. I was looking for another spool but ran out of time today. Was up there buying a new backpack and hydration pouch. Ran out of time. Had to get home and pick about 20 pounds of cherries.
