    well it did come today.

    it certainly is quite stretch resistent and the color is nice (orange), but it's very limp, alot like mason line. so i'll use it some but i think it's going to more prone to tangling that a stiffer line which is the main thing with me.

    it's "cortland" brand and others might have different characteristics i don't know.

    Maybe this has been discussed elsewhere, but I found some line that looks similar to that initial link but is pretty stiff and extremely inexpensive.

    Wellington Marine Utility Line, 1/8th inch. Diamond Braided Polypropylene (30lb working load). A small 45ft spool is 1.88 at Wal-Mart in the Boating section. I've found it in pink / green / orange (all neon).

    There's no stretch, it's light, and does not tangle.

    Bought a spool of planer board line and Bass Pro, it's the #200 orange type and I love it!
    I use it for a CRL and guy lines or anywhere I need a good utility line. 150' for $11.00 is hard to beat.

    I bought some of this http://www.amazon.com/Woodstock-130-.../dp/B003XKFFB8 and it is great stuff, the only thing for me is that it is too small for the small figure9s I use for my tarp ridgeline. I might try the 200lb stuff for my tarp ridgeline.
    Hammocking, car camping, backpacking, kayaking, and mountain biking. Getting in touch with nature is getting expensive. Good thing I can DIY!

    I bought a spool of this from Bass Pro years ago and just found it today. I whipped up a loop with a locked brummel and it was very easy to work with. It did seem to tangle a little bit but it wasn't too bad to fix it. Just had to shake it out a little bit. I think I am going to use this for tarp tie outs.

    I was eyeballing some on a fishing charter I took last summer. It felt like dynaglide to me, but it was under tension out to the plainer boards. I asked the captain about it, he said he likes the braided better than the plastic variant.

    When I bought it, I thought it was the stuff that Ed Speer used to sell and when I got it home and took the wrapper off the spool I was sad to see that it wasn't the same stuff. I'm glad I found it again and returned it to a place of prominence in the man's room of manly stuff.

    I love the stuff! If there's anybody who doesn't want theirs, I'll take it.

    Is this similar to the backing line used on a fly real?
