Bandy-bandy Reflective Cord (per metre)



Add to wish list

Named after the Bandy-bandy or Hoop snake. It is an Australian burrowing snake. The word bandy-bandy (bandi-bandi) traces back to the indigenous dialect of Kattang, from the Taree region, New South Wales (Wikipedia).

A lightweight but strong guyline cord with reflective tracers to ensure better visibility at night. 
Made with a UV resistant polyester sheath and high strength UHMWPE core. 

Price is per metre

High Strength - the UHMWPE core ensures the cord is more than strong enough for tarp and tent guylines - to be honest it is overkill.
High Visibility - don't trip over your guylines again with the reflective tracers ensuring good visibility at night.
Durability - UV resistant polyester sheath
Low weight - due in part to the UHMWPE core
Low Stretch

Material: UHMWPE core. Polyester sheath with reflective tracer
Diameter: 1.8mm

Great strong cord for multipurpose use.
I bought the blue 1.8mm cord for my tarp, works well but I still prefer the thicker 2mm cord like glowire and racespec.
This 1.8mm stuff is a little harder to untie with my big fingers, and the cord is much stiffer and grippier, which means it's not ideal for some use cases (I'm thinking slip knots).

Ended up putting 2mm racespec on my tarp.

Used the shackles on the bandy-bandy cord for my tarp ridgeline as Prusik knots to keep the tarp in alignment. Really high quality and really strong as they bite on the bandy-bandy line really tightly. Would recommend!

I purchased this to use as a ridgeline for my 4x4 metre tarp and it worked perfectly. The line is absolutely incredibly strong and easy to tie knots with. I used it with the shackles sold here too for Prusik knots. Fantastic product, would purchase again if I need more cord.
