    Anyone Use Stein Skyline 1.8mm?

    I've bought a reel instead of Zing It and intend to use it for ridgelines, guys etc. Plan to splice it wherever possible. It was about 10 cheaper than Zing It from a supplier here in the UK.

    Couldn't find much on it after doing a forum search.

    Just wondered if anyone else had used it and had any significantly good or bad experiences?

    I have never heard of it, but as long as its a dyneema based line you'll be fine.

    This stuff:

    It's Dyneema / UHMWPE (or whatever the acronym is), 8 strand and rated to 300kg. It doesn't seem as stiff as Zing It nor as soft as Lash It. Hey, I'm sure it'll be fine ;-)

    When I clicked on your link and then clicked on the picture the label says something completely different than the sites description! The label description describes the throw line we use here in the states as Dynaglide (I use this for my hammock suspension), 2mm 8 strand 450kg strength (1000#) (well I guess technically 992#'s)!

    You say that you are planning to use this for your tarp and ridgeline? This line would work fine for this application, probably a bit overkill, but it will work!
