    Spoke reflector for guylines

    Last week i found some spoke reflectors in a shop.
    Though it would be a good thing to add to my tarp guylines, and in fact, it is

    Weight nothing, and effective.

    Well would you look at that. What a creative way to repurpose a product. I've never seen spoke reflectors like that before. The only thing that has kept me from switching to ultra thin guylines is the lack or reflective cord in sub 3mm diameter. Now I have no excuse.

    Thank You

    ya had to just show that you really did, now i have got to go out and get some, you should here my wife. Best thing is she can use them on her tent also, just cannot convince her to hang. but i know one thing were going to spend alot of the summer hiking and well when she wakes up from the ground all still she will reconsider i think.

    I have always just used the finger lights. I like to call them my landing light as referred to by Hairbear the first time he had seen them.



    Now, I will have to switch to spoke reflectors as the batteries on the finger lights tend to only last one or two trips depending on my ability to turn them off after each use

    GENIUS! Most of my camping is done at scout camps with lots of feet walking around and late night bathroom trips. Tripped guys are a nearly nightly occurrence.

    Thanks for the comments.
    I use 2mm guylines and they fit perfectly, i can slide them up and down easily.

    Plus, they are quite inexpensive, about 5€ for 36 pieces, and i think i will cut them to put a shorter piece on each guyline.

    Spoke reflector for guylines

    I'm using 1-mm guylines so these should slide down to the stake which is where I would want them! Very nice. So are these available at Sports Authority and the like or only at bike specialty shops?
