    See if there is a West Marine in your area. If so, they will price match Redden and you save on shipping. Call ahead if it's not around the corner. Not ever one stocks everything but they can order it in for you.

    I believe that they still even have a discount for the hammock forum

    I buy mine from DIY Gear Supply, since I'm usually ordering a bunch of other stuff at the same time.

    I have some coming from there. Looks like a good deal and got the exact footage I need. I think this is the link: http://www.backwoodsdaydreamer.com/

    I've bought some stuff from Arrowhead in the past, good deal there as well.

    Can't go wrong either way.

    Have you tried price matching in the store or only online? I just got an order of Lash IT but didn't realize how low I was on Amsteel. I might call WM and see if they'll match the online price in the store. The only problem is they don't carry 7/64, just 1/8 and larger.

    I've only gotten stuff in the store. Print out the sheet from Redden and they'll match it. They even matched the Lash-it price which was close to their cost. The store I went to in Milwaukee had 7/64 in stock but only gray. They can order in any color or size, might take a week or so to get.
