    Tie outs

    I have a warbonnets super fly. I'm looking for the thinnest rope I can use for the 4 tie outs on either side. If you're familiar with the stuff sack that Warbonnet sends with its tarps. I'd like to use something like the line that cinches the sack closed. It looks very strong and extremely thin and lightweight, but don't know where to find it.

    What are your thoughts?

    Underground quilts carries some 1.18mm line. 1.75mm Zing-it is very popular. It's a little bigger but spliceable.

    I ordered 100ft of "guyline" from Warbonnet shipped with my hammock. Dyneema, I believe. It's thicker than the drawstring but it works great for the ridgeline(s).

    For the tie outs I used this:

    I use the 1.75mm Lash-It. You could look at Zpacks, they carry a 1.25mm line they call zline spectra cord. That should meet your needs.

    This is what I ordered (and should arrive any day) to put on my SF, along with the micro line locs.

    +1. I have the braided mason I use 8 foot lengths with a locked Brummell on one end and back splice on the other. It is small and light but man does it tangle easy. I think I am going to switch it out for some 1.7 dyneema line.

    If you want thin and light, give this stuff a look. I just got some. It has a pretty stiff hand, so it doesn't tangle too bad, and is less than 1mm. I think Shug uses this line, also.
