    What to do with the rope that came with it?

    I am new, and enjoying the forum. I have an Eno double nest and 3 blue walmart travelers(they were on closeout for $9, I am 6 ft 230lbs and fit in them, but they will probably be for my kids.)

    So far I have played around with some amsteel. I made a ridgeline for the eno, some whoopee slings, and soft carbiners.
    And I rewhipped my eno using Just Jeff's W method.

    Both the eno and the walmart came with black rope (not hollow) in the suspensions. I have replaced it with webbing or whoopies.
    Has anyone come up with anything interesting to do with the black rope?

    You could use it to tie up your tarp(s)
    A clothes line in camp
    A utilty line to gang gear in camp
    make a sling to carry firewood
    tie up a boat

    Yep, same here with a couple,er 3, Hennessy's. Bulk and weight seems to make it useless.

    Practice knots until you run out of room, and throw it away!

    Remove all the strands and join them together with varying knots........then throw it away.

    Your better half could tie your hands together when you are browsing the For Sale section for stuff you really don't need!

    Keep in in a drawer? If you are about to go on a trip and your suspension looks damaged/frayed/etc., you could always replace it quickly.
