    Most people use zing it of some size... Pick it up at redden marine.com... 1.75 is a nice size and dutch ware is designed to work with 1.75mm so that would be my choice... 2.2 is a nice size if your not using dutch ware... I love my paracord, but zing it is 1/3 the weight and a 300lb strength and no stretch... Each has their application...

    What length and type of cord are you using for guylines? I have paracord a plenty, but after reading around here I gather it's not the better solution.
    Paracord I'd say away from. Soaks up a ton of water, and stretches a lot. I like to use Spectra cord. Tiny, tough, and doesn't tangle. I use the 1.25mm for the tie outs, and the 1.5mm for the ridgeline because it fits dutch's tarp flyz real well.

    I have 2.2mm on the ridgeline and have dutch hooks and no problems as well... But dutch's site says specifically 1.75...

    I have had mine for bout a year and a half. Love it. It has been very versatile and great coverage when you need it. My current setup is Dutchware stingerz on both end spliced onto some grey 2.2 zing-it. So far I really like it. As to the guy outs I have 1.2mm g-line from litehiker.com in orange. Very bright and light weight yet plenty strong.
    Here is a quick video on the guyouts.

    Superfly

    So it arrived and I put it up. looks great, love the color.


    Then I started wondering how it compares to my Wilderness Logics Tadpole...So I laid it on top. You can see there is considerable more coverage even with the doors tied back.
