    Self-Tensioning Guylines

    I hope this is acceptable. I made myself some guyline tensioners out of 1.75mm Lash-It and silicone tubing. The tubing comes in a 10' length, which is way more than I need, so I'm offering a spare set for sale.

    $35 shipped for four 8' guylines with spliced eyes on each end, a soft shackle prusik on each guyline, and four silicone tubing tensioners that expand from 6" to 13".

    FYI: Your thread is acceptable per the Terms of Service as long as you're selling your spare gear... start buying lengths of tubing for the purpose of making these to sell, and you've crossed the line into being a vendor.

    It was 1/4" ID, 3/8" OD tubing from McMaster.

    I have only one more extra. I have no plan to sell these regularly, my fingers would be constantly raw from all the splicing. At first it's kinda fun to splice, but I don't envy the vendors.
