    For basic rope look at solid braid polyester sash/utility cord. Cheap and easy to find. From there you can go lighter and more expensive to your hearts content. ;-)
    YMMV

    Free advice worth what you paid for it. ;-)

    Here's what I did with zingit spliced into continuous loops and Dutch bling. For the tie outs I used zingit spliced into continuous loops then prusik knotted to niteize line. This allows me to adjust the tarp from inside and keeps the lines off the ground (a little more tiddy). What can I say....OCD.

    No wound? No scar?
    Yet, as the Master shall the servant be,
    And piercd are the feet that follow Me.
    But thine are whole; can he have followed far
    Who hast no wound or scar?

    ...or if you're a bit lazy, here's a great resource for pre-made ridge line and hardware:

    I've seen that metal thing before, my apologies, I am not familiar with the lingo or terms used in your response. I have seen that little metal piece before tho, what's it called?

    The thing that looks like a hook is a Dutch hook http://dutchwaregear.com/dutch-hooks.html and the other thing the line is wrapped around is the Tarp Flyz http://dutchwaregear.com/flyz.html. The yellow line is Zingit http://dutchwaregear.com/25-feet-of-zing-it.html and the continuous loops I spoke of are basically a length of the zingit that has been spliced in order to form a single loop without any knots. Very strong, very clean and really easy to make. See this thread for instructions: https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/...ontinuous+loop

    Hope that helps. Sorry for all the lingo. Once you do this and play with stuff it just kind of infects you and you forget not everyone understands the terms...or cares. I bore my friends and embarrass my wife regularly with this mess.

    I use amsteel. Mostly because I had a bunch of it, but it holds knots well and I like the strength and versatility of it. Little bulkier than zingit though
    When thro' the woods and forest glades I wander
    And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;
    When I look down from lofty mountain gardeur,
    And hear the brook, and feel the gentle breeze...

    I think you meant to say CDO. It's the same thing as OCD except the letters are in alphabetical order...as they should be.
