    Cordage

    I've looked and done a few searches but the word is mentioned so frequently it's hard to find good results. Maybe a sticky with a list?

    Where are you guys getting cordage?

    Redden Marine offers HF members a discount I do believe. Just not sure what the code is.

    Most of the cottage vendors here on HF have cordage by the foot.

    Many of the vendors here have cordage available - Dutchware, Arrowhead Equipment to name two. Others have found it a Bishco, West Marine and Redden Marine. Hope that helps!

    Also depends what cordage? Most of what i mentioned will be for zing it and amsteel.

    hammockforum is the coupon code... figured it was worth a shot on the checkout page...

    Amsteel is what i was originally after. I'm not sure what the difference is between zing-it and amsteel though.

    Zing-it and Lash-it are made from Dyneema, the same material as Amsteel. 7/64 Amsteel commonly used for hammock suspension. Zingit and Lashit are excellent for guylines, ridgelines.

    I use Redden. They've always done me right and have fast shipping. (plus I think it's cool that they give HF members a discount)
    If you ain't havin' fun, you're doin' it wrong

    Just out of curiosity (and because I have one close to my house) does rei carry anything that would work for tarp suspension?
