    Cheapest reflective stuff is probably paracord, but I don't think it's much use for guy lines- stretchy.
    NiteIze makes reflective cord (available via amazon?) and Hilleberg guy line is also reflective. Both of those are fairly pricey, though.

    Try searching at REI or this $1.50/m stuff from MEC

    It is nice not to trip over guylines in the dark, though.

    Another possibilty is to buy some reflective grosgrain tape from diygearsupply.com and add that to your tarp pullouts...

    Lawson Equipment has some nice reflective cord in orange, green, & black. Underground quilts has some good, super small diameter hi-vis cord in the same colors.

    Hey! I resemble that remark. LOL. personally I have had very good results using the line from Lawson. But last I heard we was going to discontinue the product line.
    Its a proven fact that 78.4% of all statstics are made up on the spot.

    But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)

    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)

    While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)

    Nite Ize lightens it up no doubt but seemed to tangle easy at least for me. Switched to zing it but like the reflective tape idea and may have to give that a go..
