    Nite ize reflective line

    Quick question, if youre using the nite ize reflective line for guy lines, is it safe to keep the lines attached to a silnylon tarp if the tarp is in a snake skin? Will the reflective bits hurt the tarp?

    Ok, that was two questions, so I'm a liar.

    I would think you would be just fine.

    I've been curious about that as well. The reflective pieces seem quite sharp.

    I've been wondering the exact same thing. I've been keeping my tarp with the reflective ridge line attached and stored in the snake skins. I have not noticed any wear but had concerns about it.

    I don't use snake skins but I wrap the lines around my tarp and shove it in the stuffsack. I've never had any problem. To be honest I've never even considered it as a potential problem.

    I'm not sure why it would be a big deal, but I use Kelty triptease and haven't had any issue. All I know is that it is super bright when hit with a light

    I've using the green nite-ize line for almost 2 years with no issues, I wrap them up with the tarp somtimes. The only real complaint is how stiff the line is.
